In May 2021, the IEA released its Net Zero by 2050 report, with a detailed road map of the steps required internationally to cut carbon dioxide emissions to net zero by 2050. Exploration for new resources (other than fields already approved) does not fit within the IEA pathway to 2050, and the report makes clear that low-cost, lower-carbon oil and gas will be more resilient. What does this mean for members of the New Producers Group? Our speakers will set out the findings of the report and the considerations for just transition to net zero.
