GAIA - Sustainability Transformation in Energy Industry

Join the Technology Collaboration Center and Johana Dunlop, Sustainability lead for the Society for Petroleum Engineers (SPE) discussing Sustainability Transformation in the Energy Industry.

NOTE: This webinar was originally scheduled for February 24. Due to the weather event in Texas and specifically in Houston at that time, the webinar was rescheduled for March 10th.

In this session Johana Dunlop will give an insight into SPE’s GAIA Sustainability Program and its impact in energy and other industries.

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. The SPE Gaia Sustainability Program aims to enable all individuals in the oil and gas industry to act in the service of sustainable socioeconomic development through their professional societies—empowering those at all levels within organizations to create actions to address the planet’s sustainability challenges.

Johana has been active for many years in a number of oil and gas industry professional societies, in particular IPIECA (originally the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association) and SPE, notably as the founding Chair of the Sustainable Development Technical Section and as the Chair of the first Sustainability Program at the SPE International Conference on HSSE-SR (Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Social Responsibility) and from 2017 to 2020 on the SPE International Board of Directors as Technical Director for HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment) & Sustainability.

She is committed to the industry being acknowledged and recognized for its critical role in the quality of life on this planet whilst at the same time raising its standards of environmental and social performance to the point of fully integrating sustainability factors in decision-making, performance accountability and innovation for the future.
