Sustainability in Oil and Gas - Thematic Research


The oil and gas industry relies on the extraction of a non-renewable resource that has severe negative impact on the environment. A global concern is the balancing of this negative environmental impact with the economic benefits garnered from the resources produced by the industry. The Paris Agreement of 2015 provided a general direction for various nations in order to curb environmental distress.

Lately, oil and gas companies are increasingly taking preventive actions to contain their carbon footprint. This involves changing the established procedures and incorporating new strategies, such as planned reduction in gas flaring. Additionally, companies are also trying to address the concerns raised by environmental organizations. The increasing customer preference to low-carbon energy sources is also driving a change in the industry outlook.
