Over the past few months, ESG has become a generic term used in the oil and gas industry to determine how far advanced companies are with their sustainability efforts. With mounting pressure to decarbonize and EPA’s proposed rules with tighter controls on the oil and gas industry’s methane emissions, ESG investors will expect operators to comply with these new rules and slash emissions.
