The UK and Scottish Governments set legally binding targets for achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 following recommendations by the government's official adviser, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC). Without a doubt, such a mandate has a significant impact on the Oil & Gas industry. In May, Oil & Gas UK issued their 'Roadmap 2035, a blueprint for net zero'. This roadmap sets out a plan for how we, as an industry, will play our part in helping the UK and Scotland achieve net zero, whilst also continuing to underpin UK energy security with the production of oil and gas.
Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive, OGUK and David Clark, LR's Energy Director discuss how we, as an industry, can deliver the roadmap to help achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
