‘In addition to congratulating Paul on his appointment, I would like to thank our outgoing Chair Morten Mikkelsen (Equinor). He steered Ipieca through the unprecedented challenges presented by COVID-19 and oversaw a period of great organizational development, during which Ipieca continued to grow its membership, expanded its scope to support the environmental and social performance of renewables and introduced the Ipieca Principles as a condition of membership.’
