Unlocking a low carbon future

Keynote Programme Session: Unlocking a low carbon future – enabling the energy transition

Synopsis

How do you decarbonize a carbon industry? Never has the topic of the future of the world’s energy needs been more prominent in our sector. How we work towards the Paris climate goals, how we reduce carbon emissions from our operations, how we transition to electrification and decrease our operational infrastructure, how we transfer our decades of innovation and technology to the world of renewables? All very relevant challenges as we look to a future more dependent on a broader energy mix.

The oil and gas industry is perhaps one of the most important allies for diversification into renewable energy and other energy sources. The industry generates significant levels of cash flow, boasts infrastructure networks that span the globe, and has the most to lose from falling behind the technology curve.

But it’s not simple – there is a great challenge ahead of us as we look to how we can unlock a low carbon future. This panel discussion brings together leaders from within and out with our industry to discuss the challenges we face and the opportunities that lie ahead of us in our quest to forge a sustainable future for our industry, and the world we operate in.
