What is the Oil & Gas Decarbonization Charter?

The Oil & Gas Decarbonization Charter (OGDC) is a unique collaboration to accelerate the decarbonization of the global oil and gas sector by fostering inclusive industry cooperation and knowledge sharing. Already endorsed by companies representing 40% of global oil production, the Charter lays out a series of ambitions towards net-zero operations by or before 2050.

Our mission:

The initiative aims to continue motivating oil and gas companies to decarbonize, achieving broad geographical reach and impact, to speed up actions and to encourage learning.

We recognize action is essential, and collaboration is necessary, and that no company or country should be left behind. We recognize that companies have different starting points, stakeholders and roles, making it imperative that individual companies set their own ambitions so they can be realistically achieved within the context of their operating environments.

The Charter reflects the principles that the oil and gas sector believes will contribute to achieving the aims of the Paris Agreement.

Charter signatories

Global challenges need global solutions. We recognize that oil and gas producers currently have varied emissions intensities within their operations. We aim to implement current best practices by 2030 to collectively reduce the global average emissions intensity of the oil and gas industry.
