This looks fantastic, especially given that all panelists are friends here in OEG Connect, and sustainability being the theme for the OE Global 2023 conference.

So hoping we can see some followup discussion?? from @EbbaOssiannilsson @Jacques_Dang @paulstacey – well Paul has already started one that already has some responses
