    Part of the Solution… By Iman Hill, Executive Director at International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP)

    Monday, 10th May 2021

    When the oil and gas industry says that we’re part of the solution to the global need to transition to lower carbon energy sources, we mean it, and we evidence it with our actions. However, many people automatically dismiss anything coming from our industry, or label it “greenwashing”. Others have bigger concerns on their mind. According to the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer, poverty alleviation, improving healthcare systems, and closing the economic and social divide are just some of the issues that people believe need urgent action. And these are all issues that don’t have much to do with oil and gas, right? Well, I disagree.

  • Tipping The Scales: Women & Culture

    Tipping The Scales: Women & Culture

    Wednesday, 17th March 2021

    Often when one examines the oil and gas industry from a bird’s eye view, it is obvious that men largely dominate the industry. Women, however, are dispersed across the industry and only a few of them manage to reach a C-Suite level. There is clearly an imbalance that perhaps the 1964 satirical Egyptian movie, ‘For Men Only’, highlighted best when it tackled the topic of sexism in the oil and gas industry. Certainly, the industry has come a long way since then, but there is so much more that should be done.
