There is no denying that the climate crisis is a critical area of concern for governments, businesses, and individuals worldwide. The urgent need for action is made clear when considering rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and food and water insecurity. The Paris Agreement of 2015 set warming limits to below 2°C, and ideally 1.5°C, to avoid catastrophic impacts of climate change. Since that agreement, governments have reconfirmed importance of this, such as at COP26 summit in Glasgow in November 2021. Here, world leaders committed to: i) ambitious emissions reductions by 2030; ii) phasing out unabated use of coal; iii) encouraging investment in renewables and iv) significantly reducing methane emissions. The oil & gas industries have an essential role to play.
