As we stand on the threshold of the new decade, it is certain that the future will look very different from the past. In the last 10 years, Australia and the Asia Pacific region have focused on building a world-leading oil and gas industry based around multiple modern, technologically advanced upstream and LNG operations. However, despite much heralding as a greener, “bridging fuel”, LNG’s environmental credentials are now under massive scrutiny. Oil faces even more challenges and peak oil demand is being discussed openly by CEOs of major oil and gas companies. We are in the throes of an energy transition as our energy system is evolving rapidly and diversifying, decarbonising and decentralising.
Companies are facing intense and increasing investor scrutiny around environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors. Emissions, once the domain of the environmental engineers and sustainability and reporting groups, has become a boardroom and AGM topic, propelled by high-profile initiatives like the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure and increased transparency around Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Investor and customer pressure on companies to deliver cleaner, lower emissions energy is ramping up. Changing regulation compounds the situation, making management and reporting of emissions even more complex to manage.
