Carbon Tracker, Climate Strategies and Stockholm Environment Institute are delighted to present to you: Just Transitions from Black to Green: Oil and Gas as the Next Climate Frontier. This event will be taking place in Glasgow on the 10th of November at the Danish Pavilion.
A just transition for the oil and gas sector is the next frontier and a sensitive intervention point for climate mitigation. Today, we have a narrow window of opportunity to close the gap between international climate ambitions and policies for limiting global warming to 1.5°C. In the North Sea, Denmark, Norway and the UK are expected to play a key role as first-movers, but only Denmark has so far committed to phasing out production. The scale of this challenge requires policymakers, industry, academia and civil society to work together. The event aims to explore the role of these actors in the transition from black to green, highlighting the leadership role of Denmark both at national and international level.
Mike Coffin, Head of Oil, Gas & Mining at Carbon Tracker will be participating in the panel Co-creating evidence and pathways: Can Research Accelerate Policy Action for the Just Transition Beyond the North Sea?.
Please note that a UNFCCC accredited pass is required to attend.
