Reaching deep within the industry to share knowledge about sustainable development through resources, thought leadership, and applied best practice

The SPE Gaia Sustainability Program, created by our HSE and Sustainability technical discipline, aims to enable all individuals in the oil and gas industry to act in the service of sustainable socio-economic development through their professional societies—empowering those at all levels within organizations to create actions to address the planet’s sustainability challenges.

What is GAIA?

For SPE, Gaia is the dramatic tension created between the parts of the earth’s system: human life on the surface that depends upon high intensity sub-surface energy resources.

Resources that took millions of years to produce are still vital to the energy transition humanity is undertaking today.
