The Gulf Research Center is organizing a digital roundtable discussion on September 28, which will address the question “Should GCC national oil companies target net zero emissions by 2050?”
Oil industry leaders Shell and BP have both officially announced their targets to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, including for their “Scope 3 emissions,” i.e. those emissions caused by the use of their products. Should GCC national oil companies follow in their footsteps? While other European companies are moving in that direction, US-based ones are not.
We have invited a diverse panel of experts to give their perspectives on this question, and at the end of the session we will hold a virtual vote to measure the views of the audience.
The discussion, which will be held under the Chatham House Rule, will be moderated by Prof. Giacomo Luciani.
The event will take place from 16:00-17:30 Riyadh Time. We kindly request that you confirm your attendance no later than Thursday, September 21.
Those that have confirmed their attendance will receive further information one week prior to the meeting, and the Zoom meeting access details will be issued the day prior to the meeting.
Please note that this is a closed discussion. If you wish to attend, or for any other event-related questions, please contact the meeting coordinator, Ms. Al-Anoud Khalifah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
