Climate Change Committee chief executive Chris Stark said the industry and regulator the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) could do more, sooner to reduce emissions if North Sea production is to continue.
In its advice to government, the UK's Climate Change Committee (CCC) said it supports ‘stringent’ tests on North Sea licensing as part of proposed climate compatibility checkpoints, but stopped short of recommending an end to exploration.
A leading government advisory body is to publish direction on new oil and gas licensing in the UK.
The oil and gas industry is “not doing enough” to fight climate change, according to the UK Government’s top adviser on the issue.
Boris Johnson has announced a "world-leading" new legal target to cut the UK's greenhouse gas emissions by nearly four-fifths by 2035.
Oil and gas industry warned it needs to become ‘wholly different’ as CCC releases landmark net zero report
North Sea oil and gas firms are being warned they will need to become “wholly different” if they want to retain their position in the structure of the UK’s economy.
Costs involved with decarbonising the UK’s economy to net zero have fallen in the last year, according to the Committee on Climate Change (CCC).
The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has announced plans to publish a blueprint before the end of the year laying out the path for the UK to achieve net-zero.
If you’ve read the report by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) entitled “Net Zero: The UK’s contribution to stopping global warming” then I hope you’re both as impressed with it as I am, but also horrified.
The UK has shown carbon emissions can be reduced “without breaking the economy”, a climate change watchdog said yesterday.
