Leading companies have begun to recognize that they can only address the complex sustainability challenges by scaling up their efforts through collaboration with industry and sector organizations, customers, governments and society. It is in recognition of this that a leading downstream oil & gas company, Enyo Retail and Supply have engaged in initiatives that translate the shared vision of the SDGs to create shared value for all stakeholders.
