Offshore Energies UK comment on COP28

13 December 2023

Following the COP28 announcement today, David Whitehouse, CEO Offshore Energies UK comments:

“This is an important global agreement. While each country will reflect on its own journey, through the North Sea Transition deal agreed with the UK Government in 2021, the UK offshore energy sector is already committed to and delivering on detailed plans to reach net zero by 2050.

“We continue to show climate leadership, having cut our production emissions by 24% since 2018 while many of our members producing the oil and gas we need today are the same companies expanding homegrown production of wind, hydrogen and the development of carbon capture and storage. This work supports today’s commitment to treble global renewable capacity by 2030.

“By making the most of homegrown energy the UK can reach net zero in a way that supports our jobs, contributes to our economy, cuts our emissions and brings everyone with us on the journey.”
