Creating actions to address the planet’s sustainability challenges


With an aim of fostering sustainability leadership, the two-day Gaia Summit covers highly interactive sessions allowing participants to engage in deep discussions with experts and peers about the opportunities and challenges of connecting systemic complexities with their day-to-day operational practices and decision-making.

The Gaia Summit is organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), a non-for-profit professional association with over 124,800 members in 134 countries from the traditional energy industry. It is the only global event by the SPE addressing areas of sustainability that allows global energy leaders and government authorities to engage in closed forums such as fireside chats and fishbowls, to discuss, learn, collaborate, and progress the energy transition.
