4 Business Critical Themes Being Discussed by Industry Leaders

  • Building a Resilient Business Model:

    The combination of a demand shock, supply glut & looming global recession is an unprecedented test for the entire industry. We will discuss how the industry can meet this challenge whilst building future business resilience through leveraging innovation, diversification, technology, restructuring, & new partnerships

  • Embracing Sustainable Operations for a Net Zero Future:

    With the industry facing increasing accountability for ensuring operations are environmentally sound, circular and community focussed we will address the latest initiatives and opportunities to exceed expectations and lead the way for the next phase of development

  • Creating Value in the New Normal:

    With existing value drivers encountering growing headwinds it has never been more vital to identify opportunities to continue to create value through the latest developments in integrated operations, application development, effective R&D and advanced generation fuels & products

  • Unpicking the Economic Outlook:

    Up-to-date and unbiased information has never been so vital. Start to mitigate the risk of unpredictability and create a clear path to success with the most complete and comprehensive market outlooks the industry has to offer.
