FREE WEBINAR: MARCH 2
Investment in International Oil & Gas in an ESG World
The energy transition has changed the landscape for energy companies, not only in how they operate, but also how they finance projects. This FREE WEBINAR will highlight a number of developments taking place with respect to ESG, including operating, financing and the future of course of the energy industry.
Join CGEF as we explore a number of aspects of this transition. This webinar will convene key individuals from three different areas on the subject. This will include how Canadian companies operate internationally and their responsibilities, how companies handle ESG issues and their implication for energy financing and finally an outlook for the energy sector moving forward and how to access capital. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the talks where you will have the opportunity to put forward your questions.
