The Research Centre for Energy Management at ESCP Europe Business School, hosted its first conference on 'Environmental Liability Risk: a Pressing Issue for Energy Companies' in London, at the Institute of Directors on April 24. The event was sponsored by KPMG.
Keynote speakers were Professor Patrick Gougeon, Antonios Backos, Duncan Fairgrieve and Zubair Zakir. The conference was attended by some 60 professionals (including 10 alumni), academics and students from the Executive Masters in Energy Management (EMEM). For ESCP Europe Alumni, it was an opportune moment for Shireen FRASER (MBA 2000) to introduce the launch of the new "Energy and the Environment Club" and announce the two delegates, Lucie ROUX (EMEM 2012) and Clara WAHNICH (2004), in charge of the development of this club.
