Why Pipeline Regulatory Compliance Important
Driven by a growing global energy demand, the rise in expectations placed on the energy sector from industry regulators, the investment community and public, has created a higher awareness and sharper focus on corporate responsibility and environmental care. Stakeholders across the pipeline asset value chain have embraced this shift and aligned their business models to prioritize the development and refinement of their current sustainability programs in support of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations.
