IP Week 2021: From crisis to low carbon opportunity

Bernard Looney

This coming decade will be defined by three historic, global challenges: building a resilient recovery from the devastating Covid-19 pandemic; achieving the UN goal of universal access to energy for all populations; and charting an ambitious course – at COP26 and beyond – for tackling the threat we all face from the climate emergency.

Today’s oil and gas sector faces the toughest of operating environments, but the ingenuity of its people, its engineering capabilities and innovative spirit will all be pivotal in rising to these global challenges.

As the sector’s leaders and influencers gather virtually for IP Week 2021, on February 23-25, for a programme uniquely convened and curated by the Energy Institute’s industry experts, this remains the pre-eminent international event for building collaboration between industry, government and society.

The urgency of action, together with the associated risks and opportunities in geographies around the world, will be at the heart of an unmissable week’s agenda.
