Xodus: Net-zero focus on skill share for transition

The world is at a pivotal time for energy demand and use. An integrated approach to energy systems will help tackle the dual challenge of decarbonising oil and gas and more rapidly advancing low carbon solutions. But a net-zero focus also requires a shift in how skills are addressed.


Developing an all-energy workforce for a net zero future

The transition to a lower carbon economy, including commitments by the UK and Scottish Governments to achieve net zero by 2050 and 2045 respectively, coupled with increased urgency around climate action plans leading to COP26 in November, have sent a clear message.

Transparent pay gap reporting highlights progress towards gender balance in oil and gas

Transparency in reporting is producing results, with most operators showing year on year improvements towards gender balance.   We encourage all employers to publish their data without delay, and use it to drive their action plans.   With metrics like the median pay gap (-3% to 46%), percentage of women at the top (5% to 35%) and percentage of women overall (11% to 41%) varying massively between organisations,  it’s clear balance is attainable within our industry but it takes sustained determination at all levels of leadership.
