Environmental Auditing in the North American oil and gas industry has its roots in regulation and litigation. Over time it has become a staple of many oil and gas companies, but is generally a separate function from Internal Audit. With evolving assurance concepts and recent alignment of EHS Auditing and Internal Auditing organizations, will this change? The presentation will address:
A brief history of environmental auditing
Where are we at today?
Acronym city – AAC, CECAB, the AR, BEAC and the IIA. Certifications and collaboration.
Future state – opportunities for combined assurance? Independence and lines of defence.
