Climate change

Climate change is a complex challenge and requires a combination of innovative technologies, business evolution and forward-thinking partnerships. We have identified strategic initiatives to ensure immediate, tangible action toward our energy transition strategy as we evolve for a low-carbon future. 

Initiatives include carbon capture and sequestration, low-carbon hydrogen, renewable natural gas, biofuels, electrification and other emerging technologies. 

We continue to pursue renewable energy opportunities and develop, assess and invest in a portfolio of short-, medium- and long-term decarbonization opportunities. 


Our targets:
We are working to achieve our energy transition goals

    Energy trading

    The energy transition has created challenges, but also opportunities associated with the trading of traditional and emerging, low-carbon energy products. While our work in the energy trading space is considered an opportunity as it aligns with our core markets, we remain thoughtful in our approach while we monitor signals and signposts.
