SPE will hold its first sustainability training course preceding the opening of the SPE E&P Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental Conference–Americas in Denver on 14–15 March.
The 2-day course, titled “The Sustainability Imperative: Making the Case and Driving Change,” will teach participants how to maintain project value through sustainable practices.
SPE defines sustainability as doing business in ways that balance economic growth, social development, and environmental protection to meet societal needs today and in the future.
Participants will learn to address sustainability concerns early in a project’s life cycle and to effectively engage communities. They will then apply what they learned during half-day case study discussions. It will be taught by R.L. Moreau, retired health and safety manager with 34 years at ExxonMobil; Linda Y. Brewer, partner at Environmental Resources Management; and Eric Olson, senior vice president of advisory services at Business for Social Responsibility (BSR).
The course will benefit senior managers, field managers, and members who work in field or corporate sustainability positions from beginner to advanced skill levels.
