Helping shape the future of the energy sector.

It is hard to predict the future, but you can be sure that the energy sector will look significantly different 20 years from now than it does today.


The challenge of energy demands

We must also reduce the number of single-use plastics we produce. Energy companies accounted for some of the top producers of single-use plastic in recent years. While companies will still produce fossil fuels soon, renewables could account for almost 70% of the world’s energy mix, and nearly 80% less carbon will be emitted into the air.

Global energy demands will rise by about 28% between now and 2040, but our air should be cleaner and our planet healthier. Getting to this point will not be easy. It will take billions of dollars of investments in new technologies, commitments from financial institutions to fund both low-carbon projects and renewable energy projects, and the right incentives from governments to make innovations economically viable.


Decarbonising energy production

One of the significant challenges facing the industry is decarbonising energy production, either by introducing more renewables into the global energy mix, producing fossil fuels that are more environmentally efficient, changing mining practices to leverage more outstanding output with less or positive environmental impact.
