Technology Dialogue Series - Oil and gas in a carbon constrained world: perspectives, challenges, and opportunities

As a part of the Technology Dialogue Series, UN Environment and IPIECA are organizing a two-day dialogue involving 20-25 experts from international organizations, companies in the oil and gas industry, financial institutions, utilities, non-governmental organizations, and research institutions, to discuss the implications of the Paris Agreement for the oil and gas sector, and other sectors and industries that rely on fossil fuels for their operations.

The dialogue will take place on 26-27 April 2017 at the International Council for Science in Paris, France.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The Paris Agreement and its implications for industries that supply and use fossil fuels
  • Options for  mitigating the carbon emission impact of oil and gas operations along the entire value chain, including the role of new and existing technologies in achieving this goal
  • Financial sector perspectives and views on managing climate-related risks in the industry and its role for triggering low carbon investments
  • Decarbonization perspectives (short/medium term and long term) and options for selected industries such as aviation, transport, agriculture.
