BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#cleanenergy–IHRDC, a seasoned leader in training and competency development for the energy industry for over 50 years, has unveiled a strategic initiative to assist oil and gas companies in preparing for the anticipated shift from fossil fuels to a sustainable, lower-carbon future by 2050.

According to Brad Donohue, President & CEO of IHRDC, “Our commitment to this initiative is driven by three factors: the need for awareness about the energy transition among internal staff and stakeholders, the eagerness of industry employees to acquire new skills, and the necessity for cultural change within traditional energy organizations.
