Implementing Sustainable Strategy in the Energy & Extractive Industries (Executive programme)

The drive for sustainable development and corporate sustainability has continued to reshape the global economic landscape and attract regulatory attention. This drive is intense in sectors perceived to have a direct impact on society.

The impact of the Energy and Extractive Industries in most developing regions cannot be over-emphasised. It is usually environmental, social and economic; and both sectors cannot escape the need to explore and exploit their sustainability challenges and opportunities.

In addition, both sectors are currently undergoing a phenomenal transformation, mainly induced by the liberalisation and privatisation agenda of the federal government. These will entail opening up the market to both local and sophisticated global actors, and their consequent challenges. In that regard, it is obvious that there is the need for businesses and regulators in the sector to take these challenges seriously and make the necessary adjustments to competitively take advantage of the emerging trends in the global extractive and energy market for the benefit of the domestic market. The essence of this programme is to enable firms in the energy and extractive industries to competitively minimise their negative impact and enhance their positive effect on society, the environment and economy. One way to go about this is to ensure that sustainability thinking and paradigm are embedded in their strategies. Research and experience have shown that well-articulated and engrained sustainability strategies enhance organisational adaptability and survival in complex environments.​

This programme will expose participants to​

·       Current trends and issues in the Global Energy and Extractive Industries

·       The Nigerian Energy and Extractive Industries – Policies, Players and Practices
