One of the greatest challenges to the oil and gas industry today include the emerging Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) related rules and regulations as demonstrated by new ESG requirements in most of the home states of major energy companies. The European Union, South Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom, among others, have instituted specific sustainability reporting regulations.
Many oil and gas companies are adapting to this new environment, others are still lagging behind, but they all face challenges and open questions, particularly relating to the restrictions on investments and the disclosure obligations many new emerging regimes create to the energy industry.
