The Guardian: Oil giants must cut output by a third to meet climate target – study

The world’s largest oil and gas companies need to slash their production by more than a third by 2040 to meet global climate targets, according to a new report.

The seven listed oil majors – including ExxonMobil, BP and Shell – would need to cut the total amount of oil and gas they produce every day by 35% to avoid driving temperatures 1.5C higher than pre-industrialised levels.

Global governments would also need to stop issuing new oil and gas licences for fossil fuel exploration, according to the report.

The study was produced by Carbon Tracker, a financial thinktank, using publicly available oil company data to measure their carbon footprints today and by 2040.
