Synopsis

Given that the call to action on climate change has advanced with companies facing more pressure to develop and execute meaningful net-zero strategies. 
 
Sustainability is now seen as a default where energy companies are recognising that moving to net-zero carbon is not just the “right thing to do” but rather the only way to thrive and maintain relevance. A structured three-prong approach companies should have in mind is:

1. Cleaning our Energy

– Minimising emissions from oil and gas through energy-efficient means and clean hydrocarbon systems

2. Accelerating the Transition

– Exploring commercial alternatives besides oil and gas such as EVs, wind and solar power.

3. Future of Energy

– Scaling future solutions through hydrogen solutions, synfuels and ammonia.

 

This webinar seeks to showcase how organisations are dramatically accelerating their decarbonisation journey and shifting from science-based targets to implementing solutions, effectively moving the needle on climate while creating new opportunities for growth.
