Why Trust? Trust is a crucial asset. It is essential to protect, nurture and enhance trust in order to be successful in today’s complex operating environment. It is crucial for all organisations, but especially those operating in the energy sector.

In this session, and based on the findings of the annual Edelman Trust Barometer, we explore the role of trust in moving a business from having a licence to operate, to having a licence to lead. Through a short presentation, panel discussion and Q&A we explore the state of trust, the interaction between business, government, NGOs and the media, how to go about building trust and its importance to the bottom line.

  • 44. A NEW TRUST ENVIRONMENT 44 86% believe a company can take specific actions that both increase profits and improve the economic and social conditions in the communities where it operates. Operations and CSR programs are now tablestakes (compared to 2008). Business must focus on Engagement and Integrityto build trust. CEO must become Chief Engagement Officer There has been a significant change in the trust environment since 2009. Business must now lead the debate for change. People trust business to innovate, unite and deliver across borders in a way that government can’t. This trust comes with the expectation and responsibility to maintain it. Doing this is less risky than not doing it at all.
