Through the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, it is envisaged that Oil and Gas companies will work together collaboratively and share best practices and technical solutions to address climate change and sustainable energy.
|Objectives|| Member companies commit to:
Share best practices to enhance overall standards and environmental performance Develop common methodologies to measure climate-related impacts and contributions to solutions
Design a reporting process that enables the voluntary pooling of efforts and the communication of progress as a group to external stakeholders
Facilitate and deepen engagement in international multi-stakeholder specific solutions and initiatives as well as the design of shared roadmaps
Engage with other industries to identify and build climate related synergies
|Activities|| OGCI provides a full spectrum on what the sector is currently doing to address climate change, and what it is prepared to do, collectively, going forward.
To date, OGCI has been focusing on three key areas: role of natural gas, carbon reduction instruments and tools, and long term solutions. Members have been sharing best practice amongst each other, as well as seeking views from a diverse group of external stakeholders.
