Join the Australia-Pacific Chapter, Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia and Energy Resource Law for an informative and engaging talk on the current regulatory environment for ESG indices.

The ESG matrix continues to expand with a myriad of legal and regulatory considerations for companies operating in the energy sector, among others. It is at times measured, at others – to quote those in the industry – ‘tedious’ and ‘onerous’.

Certain of the ESG indices are laudable because of the benefits they bring, relevantly mitigating the risk of greenwashing and engendering a more sustainable environment. However, there is an increasing countereffect, ‘green-hushing’, whereby companies deliberately downplay their environmental/green credentials or simply keep them confidential.

This presentation touches on the current regulatory environment for greenwashing, covering certain jurisdictions, looks at the pros and cons of green-hushing, and offers some practical tips.

Early-bird registration is A$40 for AIEN members until June 19, A$50 afterwards. Learn more and register online with SPE WA at the link below.
