The pressure of ESG is being felt throughout the oil and gas value chain with the upstream sector facing the most scrutiny.
We will explore ESG strategies that work with two industry experts.
Kaitlyn Allen is sustainability-focused entrepreneur, business owner, and CEO. Kaitlyn founded Global Affairs Associates, a boutique corporate sustainability consultancy, in 2013. She and her team believe that business-centered approaches are crucial for creating long-lasting value. As CEO, Kaitlyn has grown Global Affairs Associates from an individual consulting practice to a well-respected boutique firm in Houston, serving clients across the U.S. As principal consultant, Kaitlyn has consulted on sustainability and ESG issues, including strategy, risk, communications, and transparency, for a variety of industries, including oil and gas upstream, drilling, construction, midstream, and manufacturing. Kaitlyn speaks frequently on the drivers behind the ESG investing trend, the differences in approaches to “responsible investment,” and how companies can improve and articulate their ESG/sustainability value propositions. In early 2021, Global Affairs Associates launched the ESG Decoded podcast to provide thoughtful, nuanced content that goes beyond the headlines into practice. Kaitlyn is also the founder of a tech startup, Mend It, Inc., which will be doing a capital raise in 2021. A proud alumna of Georgetown University and Trinity University, Kaitlyn is a native Houstonian and currently resides in Houston.
