We had the opportunity to visit with Tisha Schuller about the importance of ESG during life after Covid. One of the key take aways from the interview is that our millennial work force in the Oil & Gas market is one of the United States' national treasures.  It is a great discussion with Dan Genovese, Director, EnerCom; Michael Tanner, Host of 360 Digital Closing Bell; and myself. 

Tisha is a leader in the Oil & Gas industry, with a unique background. She started out as an environmental activist, and I did not see that one coming. We were talking about ESG and the importance to investors and consumers. But we turned to the importance of the millennial leaders in the energy and oil & gas  market. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Oilfield companies  need to lower the  impact to the environment. Investors and consumers are no longer complaisant about ESG.
  • Our millennial work force is in fact a national treasure that can change the public messaging around the oil and gas industry.

Accidentally Adamant - by Tisha Schuller

Accidentally Adamant is Tisha Schuller’s story of passion for the environment, finding common ground with strange bedfellows, and explaining fracking until blue in the face. It chronicles her time at the helm of the Colorado Oil & Gas Association during one of the most contentious times in Colorado’s long history of resource development. It is a story of being brave, overcoming significant missteps as a leader, and consistently returning to what she wanted to accomplish.

Accidently Adamant -oilandgas360

Accidentally Adamant is an excellent book for any person interested in the energy sector. 

I enjoyed the story, but Tisha also brought it a bit too close to home. I work in the oil and gas space, and have tended to poke fun at folks that are "green". The argument is not about climate change vs oil and gas, it is about poverty and how do we help humanity. The best thing you can do is not argue with people, but ask how we can work together. Thanks for writing your story. - Stu Turley
