About this presentation

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues are beginning to dominate discussions in and around process industry operations and investment. In this paper, we shall examine the current compliance landscape requirements / goals / standards that have now been published and are being rolled out around the world. The paper shall connect positive outcomes to the opportunities for the reduction of all Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, which shall be described from a top-down perspective, noting four completely different approaches (Reduce, Replace, Remove, Offset) where emissions can be minimized across the chemical industry.

A structured and consistently applied approach, covering the four critical elements of a proven Emissions Elimination Program (Surveys, Analysis, Mitigation, Improvement) shall be described, which offers a proven pathway to the lowest possible emissions, with the added benefits of building safer, more sustainable and more profitable process operating companies.

Through a series of focused case studies, we shall highlight the root causes of emissions, how we found and quantified them and then focused on achieving the delivered benefits in each scenario. Our approach can be easily replicated across the entire chemical industry.

By taking a collaborative, planned, systematic and holistic approach to emissions elimination we can make immediate and major progress towards a net zero emissions target and we encourage all stakeholders to join us.
