Detailed Description

Symposium Context

A significant realignment of expectations has propelled the world’s energy companies to the forefront of the low carbon economy transition. The world’s energy cycle is undergoing a significant transformation and all options are on the table. How energy is discovered, produced, and consumed within planetary boundaries is top of mind with stakeholders, investors and within board rooms.

Managing carbon while delivering reliable energy to meet growing demand is a huge opportunity for the oil and gas industry. Amid these ever-increasing demands from investors, lenders, and customers, which strategies should energy companies adopt to decarbonize their operations and diversify their product portfolios to achieve net-zero across the value chain? How should they track and account for carbon?

Energy reinvention is here! How are we going to seize the moment to create the environmentally safe value that society and shareholders expect?

We are looking forward to a powerful discussion with:

Our Unique Format

What Makes Us Different?

The Houston Strategy Forum is a highly interactive discussion forum, not a presentation forum. No speeches, no PowerPoint presentations. 

Our business talk show format facilitates an energetic, meaningful, and respectful exchange between our speakers and attendees. Our unscripted format often creates "insightful learning opportunities." We receive rave reviews about our format from speakers and attendees. 

To encourage an open and candid discussion we follow Chatham House rules.
