ESF 2021 – Energy & Sustainability Forum


31 May 2021 to 02 Jun 2021





Event Description

The realisation and realities of a net zero emissions energy system are hitting the downstream industry.

2020 has accelerated the pivot to sustainability. At the core of conversion, refiners and petrochemical producers must responsibly and proactively transition from oil processors to energy providers, creating the products and services that today’s consumer still values. Technologies keep evolving, and globally, operations and assets are adapting to remain resilient and contribute to a net zero carbon economy.

Against this backdrop, Euro Petroleum Consultants is pleased to announce a new focused event to support the discussions and development of a sustainable energy future in which the downstream industry plays a leading role. ESF 2021 will take place virtually on our unique and tailor-made virtual platform that enables all participants to experience the benefits of an in-person event, online.

As the only event dedicated to downstream decarbonisation, ESF virtual is truly an unmissable event for all things related to downstream decarbonisation and sustainability.
