Global trends are driving much of the energy conversation, from private businesses and public policymakers, to consumers, shareholders and other stakeholders. A measure of trust from these audiences is critical as energy companies look for opportunities to bring energy solutions and benefits to the world while policymakers face the complex balancing act between resource development and economic, environmental and political realities.
The stakes are high in the energy space. Now, more than ever, energy leaders need to build — and in some cases, rebuild — trust in the industry. As the global energy landscape continues to evolve, it’s time to talk about trust — and inspire positive action on energy.
Edelman’s Trust Barometer offers insights across institutions, leaders, industries and energy industry sub-sectors that are valuable to building trust.
