Article Scaling Decarbonization Through Partnerships
Reuters Energy Transition Europe 2021 discussion with SLB Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer Dr. Katharina Beumelburg.
Climate action strategies are meaningless without decisive and measurable action. We believe it is possible to balance the planet by meeting the Paris Agreement commitments, and we've oriented our emissions reduction approach toward them. To secure a sustainable future, the time to act is now.
Our industry has an important role to play in the global energy transition, and SLB is evolving for that exciting future. Our vision is to define and drive high performance sustainably. It's our responsibility to act fast to help decarbonize the world's energy system.
Our climate action strategy is underpinned by our commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050—with interim targets for 2025 and 2030 along the way. Our goals cover all three scopes of emissions, and we are implementing a detailed road map of emissions reduction actions within each operating division and geography.
As we work to reduce our emissions footprint across our operations, we also have the opportunity to help our customers decarbonize their operations and avoid additional greenhouse gas emissions.
Our domain and technology expertise can help accelerate the energy transition, and we are growing our portfolio of new energy investments. These include hydrogen, lithium, energy storage, carbon capture and sequestration, geothermal power, and geoenergy for heating and cooling buildings.
