OEUK, our industry, and COP27

COP 26


The UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26)
in Glasgow on 1 – 12 November 2021.

COP26 was a significant moment in time for our industry in 2021, it was a point at which we demonstrated how much progress our industry had made in the reduction of emissions. It gave us a clear pathway to work towards the government’s commitments to the UK’s net zero pathway.

A brief History
Our journey started way back in 2019 when as an industry we were the first to put forward our response and commitment to the net zero challenge with our Roadmap2035, this is the UK oil and gas industry’s own agreed pathway to achieving net zero.

North Sea Transition Deal (NSTD)

Now with the addition of Government support for our industry through the North Sea Transition Deal, we can continue to be at the forefront of driving and promoting an industry making serious commitments and significant change as we progress the energy transition for the UK.

OEUK and industry have been working across all aspects of the Roadmap for more than two years prior to COP26 and with the North Sea Transition Deal to join our Roadmap2035 we are making progress at a rapid pace.

We look forward to sharing updates from a progressive and changing industry at Glasgow this year.

27th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP27)

The UN climate change conference, COP27, will be held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from 6 to 18 November 2022.

COP27 will bring governments together to accelerate global efforts to confront the climate crisis. It is an important meeting because the latest science shows that climate change is moving much faster than we are, and the industry needs to keep to its promises.
