Statoil Presents 2030 Climate Roadmap

Statoil 2030 Climate Roadmap

Statoil’s new climate roadmap details its targets for CO2 emission reductions and improved carbon intensity, energy efficiency as well as profitable growth in renewables and low carbon solutions.

The CO2 emissions from Statoil’s oil and gas production are already at a low level compared to the industry average. With the roadmap, Statoil introduces a new portfolio target for CO2 emissions per barrel produced, delivering 20% reductions by 2030 – from 10kg to 8kg – well below the industry average. This will further strengthen Statoil’s industry leadership in climate performance.

“The world needs affordable and reliable oil and gas for decades to come. At the same time, it needs to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Statoil is committed to developing its business in support of the ambitions of the Paris agreement. We believe that being able to produce oil and gas with lower emissions while also growing in profitable renewables will give competitive advantages and provide attractive business opportunities in the transition to a low carbon economy,” says Eldar Sætre, Statoil’s president and CEO.
