With the entry into force of the Paris Climate Agreement, the world has committed itself to a low-carbon pathway that poses a fundamental—and perhaps existential—challenge to the oil and gas sector.  Though some oil majors have acknowledged the need to consider climate risk in their capital planning and strategy, many others have done little to address this risk—even as longer-term trends in technology, human behavior and global policy continue to increase the likelihood that the world is approaching peak demand for oil.

How should analysts or investors approach the issue of climate risk in 2017 and beyond? 

How can we assess whether a company has a project portfolio and approach to capital allocation that is resilient across a range of future scenarios?  Join us for a roundtable discussion, informed by an expert panel of speakers, to explore the ways in which the industry is and isn’t confronting climate risk; and understand how integrating scenario analysis with governance is key to avoiding group-think and blind spots.
