Achieving the Paris Agreement requires a combination of innovation and practical action. The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative consortium, which represents 32% of global operated oil and gas production, created the $1B+ Climate Investments fund to invest for a sustainable low-emissions future. Our growing portfolio includes “hard to abate” sectors across industrials and commercial transport, and this talk highlights these and our approach to implementing impactful solutions.
