The consequences of non-compliance in regulated sector, especially the energy sector, can be catastrophic, especially in considering the potential impact on people and communities.
Compliance is complicated. It is complicated to define. It is complicated to manage. It is complicated to achieve.
Conventional thinking about compliance is rapidly changing largely due to complex regulation (regulations change every 12 minutes in North America), enforcement related to regulations and emerging issues that blend regulations and business practices more comprehensively.
Environment, social and governance issues are the best example of the blend of regulations and compliance matters. ESG compliance is an emerging operating consideration that is evaluated with an ever-decreasing range of tools and frameworks. This is a challenge given that the factors used to measure the non-financial and non-regulated impacts of environmental, social and governance factors facing every organization.
The ESG phenomenon is pervasive in global capital markets and has driven organizations to implement and manage an appropriate ESG approach to operations and reporting capabilities to identify any vulnerabilities to corporate risks, especially those risks that could damage reputation.
An explicit corporate approach to ESG provides a range of business and investment opportunities. Such an approach establishes procedures to determine whether the company’s actions match its stated ESG goals, the standards set by industry leaders and the accepted and adopted frameworks used to measure ESG performance and outcomes in related to both industry peers and other organizations.
Organizations face a number of challenges in implementing compliance programs and initiatives. There are myriad stakeholders, data, documents, processes, locations, assets etc. that need to be included in the compliance discussion. Ideally, compliance programs – both regulated and ESG issues – have become more unified. Still, implementation of these programs typically stall as organizations face the issues related to collaboration, collection and management of the wide range of information that needs to be assessed: how do we manage the information?
