Control Risks

The news of conflict within Ukraine in the last few weeks serves as a stark reminder of the impact that geopolitical relations have on energy cost and supply. Any conflict has consequences and many of these emerging from Ukraine could be significant for businesses, particularly in Europe, but across the world. The immediate period is one of confusion and uncertainty and we are already seeing high energy prices going even higher. The conflict will have longer term consequences, too, for energy supplies with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline appearing a remote possibility now. This, before we even consider the impact if the conflict was to overspill into neighbouring countries.

Resilience First is working with colleagues at Control Risks in the delivery of this hugely topical webinar looking at the resilience of the energy markets. The programme will include Oksana Antonenko from Control Risks, a specialist expert on geopolitical relations in eastern and central Europe and Russia, and National Grid’s David Wright, Group Chief Engineer & Group Director of Safety, Health & Business Resilience.

Coping with volatile international energy markets, and, becoming more resilient to price and supply issues will require businesses to examine their energy demands, particularly in the drive to a net-zero environment.  What can businesses realistically do to counter uncertain fluctuations and minimise their financial and operational risks whilst delivering sustainability and success?
