ONS 2022 Theme

Every ONS since 1974 has been crowned with its own theme, and the theme for next year’s event is now launched.
The glue of society

There are just a few elementary forces that hold our world together. The one that’s the glue of society is called trust. Allowing people to live and work together. Organizations and communities to thrive. Businesses to create value. And nations and the international community to stay out of conflicts and solve great challenges. Trust is the building block for any relationship without which the foundation will always remain shaky.

Committed to the energy transition

It’s our energy industry’s role to design, build and shape the sustainable energy future. We need to respond to the big questions of our time in a manner that boost long term trust. From international diplomacy. From investors. From the young generations. But how? The energy industry aims to meet the toughest global hurdles with business solutions, commitments and genuine willingness to act. By being transparent. Proving ourselves reliable. And through caring for the development of mankind.

Creating flexible work solutions

Human progress has always relied on co-operation between people. Over the last years we have seen great changes in the way we work and interact. More remote. More digital. Finding new paths for relationships to flourish, push for growth and creativity while being apart. The digital revolution represents a great shift in trust, and in tech we trust for now. But what will it take to keep it that way? How will it affect human trust? We as workers and leaders are being challenged. The workplace as we knew it is transforming. We need to adapt to new realities – both in attitude and skills. Changes that require trust.

Re-building global collaborations

These are times where the global community is re-establishing and finding new paths. What will the geopolitical repositioning look like; which alliances will emerge and who will rely on who? How has the pandemic altered economics, international collaborations and energy markets? Which opportunities arise and how will energy investors respond?

ONS – one big handshake

ONS 2022. Yet again we meet in larger assemblies. Offer a solid handshake and give each other a good hug. Visit each other unrestricted – across borders. Presenting innovations and technologies. Meeting customers and signing deals. Debating energy solutions and the hurdles on our path towards a more sustainable future.

Overall, the core is trust – being the foundation for success with partnerships, business deals and recruitment. It’s when international players – companies, countries, organizations, individuals – trust each other, mutual co-operation for peace, profit and prosperity can flourish.

We trust to see you at ONS 2022.
