Supporting the Paris Agreement and promoting carbon emission reduction in the oil and gas industry

As a responsible energy company, CNPC acts in strict compliance with the Chinese government’s requirements on greenhouse gas emission reduction, and actively supports and participates in the international communities’ efforts to address climate change. Robust international cooperation is required to combat climate change. In 2015, CNPC joined the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI). As a member of the OGCI, CNPC played a leading role in emission reduction in the oil and gas industry by taking the initiative in carbon reduction and sequestration, and pledging to help all participants, governments, industrial sectors and individuals to jointly invest in a future of lower emissions.

" I mplementing the Paris Agreement requires the further promotion of energy supply-side structural reform. OGCI provides an ideal cooperative platform for the global petroleum industry's low carbon transformation."------Wang Yilin, Chairman
