As concerns over climate change escalate, the pressure for sustainable transformations increases rapidly. This is particularly evident in one of the highest polluting industries — the oil and gas industry. This industry is pressured by various stakeholders to both deliver optimal financial performance and improve their environmental practices without just greenwashing. In this paper, we explore how managerial knowledge and experience can impact the propensity of oil and gas firms to invest in renewable innovations. Using a sample of oil and gas firms from around the world, we consider managerial experience in various institutional settings and how it may impact the firms’ investments. This paper aims to contribute to understanding the role of managerial experience and sustainable development in oil and gas firms.
