Oil and gas
Accenture and the World Economic Forum are working together to navigate the path to recovery from COVID-19 and have formed the Oil and Gas Industry Action Group (IAG). The IAG is comprised of more than 30 CEOs across national oil companies, international oil companies, independents and oilfield services companies focused on monitoring the evolution of the crisis, identifying specific actions and sharing key findings through blogs, reports and the “Pulse of the Oil and Gas Industry” trends.
Accenture supported the World Economic Forum’s Electricity Industry Action group in creation of the System Value framework, which more holistically evaluates economic, environmental, social and technical outcomes of potential energy solutions. The framework can be used to support a diverse range of activities including investment decisions, policy decisions, as well as public-private dialogues between business, regulators and policy makers on solutions to accelerate economic growth and a clean energy transition.
