Hydrogen/Oil/Gas/ LNG Working Group
WGGO is urging oil and gas companies to align their strategies with the transition to low carbon energy by investing in technologies that reduce their carbon footprint, promote carbon capture technology, recycling and storage, setting science-based GHG targets, and supporting ambitious climate policies. WGGO supports a pragmatic, sensible transition towards renewable energy, accounting for environmental concerns, and responsible energy development.
World wide oil prices, rapid innovation of clean energy technologies, and the expansion of climate and clean air policies are changing the future of oil and gas demand. Learn how we are working to decarbonize six of the highest-emitting sectors.
