The energy industry continues to be an enabling and necessary resource as organizations across all industries begin preparing for a new reality and recovery from the impact of COVID 19.

Six months after the release of the KPMG 2020 CEO Outlook (COVID-19 edition), we have conducted a pulse survey to explore if and how the three-year outlook has changed.

Like other industries, the energy industry was forced to scramble to respond to the pandemic to ensure the safety of employees and operations and the safe and efficient delivery of energy that communities and organizations depend on. Now, even with the ongoing impact of the pandemic, the energy industry appears to be taking a leading role in the acceleration of the energy transition.

The 2021 pulse survey reveals that energy CEOs are embracing change, reprioritizing risks, and increasingly confident of the sector’s growth prospects.
