Advancing a durable low carbon energy transition

Our goal:

Develop new knowledge and indicators using a novel systems approach so that stakeholders can make more strategic and sustainable environmental decisions throughout the petroleum sector, with an eye toward informing investments, operations, and governance of oil and gas value chains

Our work:


The Oil Climate Index + Gas (OCI+)

Preview a new open-source tool under development that compares the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprints of 29 global oil and gas resources, with a focus on methane management as well as the mitigation of other GHGs.

Petroleum Companies Need a Credible Climate Plan

Calls for tighter limits on greenhouse gas emissions have put petroleum companies in the driver’s seat. It’s time for them to develop transparent systems based on standardized, verifiable climate plans.


Mapping, Measuring, and Managing Methane

Although carbon dioxide is the major greenhouse gas, short-lived climate pollutants like methane are rapidly accelerating global warming in the near term. Methane emissions are on the rise, and global growth in oil and gas production and consumption is a prime driver.
