Oil and gas industry leaders are facing the real-world challenges of executing on company decarbonization strategies. Stanford University’s Natural Gas Initiative (NGI) and Adamantine Energy have collaborated to build the Real Decarbonization ® Consortium for leaders from oil and gas. 


Building upon our February convening and subsequent participant feedback, this intimate, invitation-only coalition will gather for year-round programming and engagement to give forward-thinking leaders the opportunity to plan and problem-solve with their peers. 


  • Explore real-world solutions to the challenges of managing base business expectations with execution of ESG, new ventures, and decarbonization projects
  • Build connections to other leaders with oversight of decarbonization, new ventures, and ESG
  • Identify, expand, or refine decarbonization-risk and -driver profile with insights from peers
  • Participate in confidential, Chatham house rule discussions on individual and company risks and opportunities
  • Leave with novel insights that will drive upcoming actions


  • All events are included for existing paid consortium members
  • Additional invited participants will cover program costs with a prorated $3,500 contribution which includes attendance for one participant at each event
  • Additional sponsors will be recognized on all remaining event materials for $5,000
  • Reach out to Lindsey Slaughter to confirm your participation or request more details regarding sponsorship
