Paul Collier in conversation with Spencer Dale
For the second event in our series, Managing oil, gas and mining governance in exceptional times, Paul Collier speaks to Spencer Dale, Chief Economist at BP and former Chief Economist of the Bank of England.

As the world pivots their energy usage to more sustainable solutions, the oil and gas industry must work with governments to ensure the transition does not unfairly impact poorer countries. During this conversation, Paul and Spencer will delve into the role of the oil and gas industry in climate change. From the development of sustainable growth strategies to decarbonising wealthier countries, this conversation will tackle some of the biggest questions facing the industry today.
