Chevron’s lost hills oil field is being powered with 1.4 billion kilowatt-hours of green energy
Today’s energy landscape continues to rely on fossil fuels to power the world forward, but partnership and innovation are helping Chevron to develop more energy with less environmental impact. Thanks to California’s sunshine, San Joaquin Valley Business Unit (SJVBU) will soon be reducing CO2 emissions associated with oil production at its Lost Hills oil field.
To avoid the worst climate impacts, global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will need to drop by half in the next 10 years and stay the course to a 2050 net-zero emissions horizon. Companies are being tasked to realign their strategies and operations in-line with these tightened goals. But what does that mean in practice? How can businesses realign business models without impacting current success?
Reserve your seat at our 2020 webinar and hear from Novo Nordisk, Schneider Electric and WWF on their net-zero journey.
