Statoil CEO Helge Lund addresses Statoil’s climate commitments at the at the UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit in New York.
“Fighting climate change is vital,” says Lund. “More than 80% of greenhouse gas emissions are linked to the use of fossil fuels. Statoil has a clear objective—to be recognised as the most carbon-efficient oil and gas producer in the world.”
Today, Lund will address the importance of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Oil and Gas Partnership on behalf of the founding partners at Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s press conference at the UN Climate Summit in New York. He will also announce that Statoil has joined the partnership.
The CCAC Oil and Gas Partnership is a unique opportunity to join forces with partners from government and civil society—as well as the industry—to share information, learning and best practice on methane reduction. The partnership commits Statoil to transparency about methane emissions and its roadmap for reducing them.
