Full Agenda

Friday, December 6, 2019
The Geological Society

What is Responsible Investing and how should we measure it? These are two of the questions that we hope investors, operators, policy makers and NGOs will challenge and answer during this conference.

Responsible Investment seems to be currently determined primarily by the volume of carbon an organisation releases to the environment.

We believe it should encompass a broader and more balanced set of requirements, as suggested by the Sustainable Development Goals, and measured by Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) reporting, thereby ensuring that those organisations who truly strive to operate with clear Purpose in a more sustainable manner are actively supported by investors.

If you are an investor, oil & gas company or service provider, policy maker, industry body, regulator, NGO, insurer, analyst or interested party seeking to shape the future of Responsible Investment in the natural resources sector, we hope to see you at the conference.

Chris Wheaton was formerly European energy sector analyst with Allianz and energy investment analyst with T Rowe Price.

"Having trained as a Chemical Engineer, I've spent over half my 20 year career as a stockpicker and stockmarket analyst following the Oil & Gas industry and global energy markets. I've also analysed and stockpicked across sectors as diverse as financials, transport, and media.
