National Oil Companies and Climate Change: Insights for Advocates
Climate and development advocates who seek to reduce fossil fuel supply and promote sustainable economies must engage with state-owned oil companies, many of which are in countries with high levels of poverty. During COP26, NRGI and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) published a briefing sharing five guidelines for engagement. And on 6 December, NRGI, the Global Gas & Oil Network (GGON) and IISD will discuss these insights during a pair of launch events.
During COP26, NRGI’s Suneeta Kaimal and Aaron Sayne shared three actions needed from policy makers, activists and the international community to support quicker, fairer energy transitions for fossil fuel- and mineral-producing countries. (Learn more about approaches to an equitable energy transition from these reflections on COP26.)
Registration is now open for the NRGI and Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford event series in discussion with NRGI board member Sir Paul Collier on extractive industry challenges in the era of rising commodity prices and the energy transition.
The Energy Transition and the Far-Reaching Implications
This COP26 event, organized by Carbon Tracker and featuring NRGI's Nafi Chinery, explored the risks and the opportunities faced by developing countries and the support they may need in the context of the energy transition.
