Oil and Gas Industry Engagement on Climate Change
Drivers, Actions, and a Path Forward
The scientific consensus is that to avoid catastrophic effects of climate change, global temperature rise must be held below 2 degrees Celsius, and ideally below 1.5 degrees. Achieving this will include a fundamental transformation of the world energy system. Given their important role within this system, some oil and gas companies are now strategizing to become “energy companies,” adapting to this global energy transition.
The CSIS Energy & National Security Program is excited to release Oil and Gas Industry Engagement on Climate Change: Drivers, Actions, and Path Forward, a new report on the oil and gas industry’s climate engagement and opportunities to drive further technological development.
This event will convene experts on the energy industry, the energy transition, and industry strategy relating to climate change to illustrate the themes and the findings of the report. Panelists will discuss the industry’s investments in low-carbon technologies, how to take advantage of the investment made thus far, and what more companies can do to help get us on track to limit dangerous global warming.
This event is the culmination of a project on oil and gas companies’ low-carbon investments sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co.
This event is made possible by generous support from the J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.
