Decarbonisation dominoes: what it means for oil and gas companies

Report summary

Shell, Chevron and ExxonMobil are still calibrating their responses to the events of 26 May. But the successful stakeholder initiatives are a wake-up call for the entire oil and gas corporate sector (and beyond). Board rooms across the global industry will already be reviewing strategy and targets. What’s needed to trigger a decarbonisation domino effect? Government policy, stakeholder pressure, technological breakthroughs and shifting market sentiment are the principal drivers that could speed up change. Corporate behaviour will be a key indicator of the pace of travel. We take a look at the catalysts for change and implications for oil and gas companies.
