We’re going to need a bigger planet

The oil company Shell would need to use 28.6m hectares (70.7m acres) of land – an area roughly the size of Italy – to offset 35% of its emissions by 2050 using such techniques…

As the United Nations Cop26 climate conference in Glasgow winds down, many world leaders and corporate boards are embracing an increasingly popular idea to solve climate change: trees. read more

Governments and Big Oil were first. The next wave of climate lawsuits will target banks and boards

Sam [email protected] :PUBLISHED THU, NOV 11 20212:26 AM EST

GLASGOW, Scotland — Financial institutions and individual board members could be the next targets of climate litigation cases, according to the campaigners who helped to secure a landmark courtroom victory against oil giant Royal Dutch Shell.

It comes at a time when countries are scrambling to reach consensus in the final days of the COP26 climate summit. Negotiators from 197 countries are taking part in discussions with the goal of keeping the all-important global target of 1.5 degrees Celsius alive. read more

BP and Shell: Big Oil risks big embarrassment as profits roll in during COP26

BP and Shell: Big Oil risks big embarrassment as profits roll in during COP26

By Lucy Tobin World leaders this week gathered in Glasgow to discuss tackling climate change, which is driven in part by fossil fuel emissions. At the same time super majors like BP and Shell have announced billions in profits thanks to surging oil prices.

The timing was impeccable: as 30,000 COP26 delegates listened to UN Secretary-General António Guterres warn that “our addiction to fossil fuels is pushing humanity to the brink… either we stop it — or it stops us,” BP hurled billions of dollars at its investors via its third-quarter results.

The oil major pledged to return another $2.25 billion via buybacks and dividends this week thanks to Brent oil trading at $85 dollars a barrel, its highest since 2014. Boss Bernard Looney admitted BP was “a cash machine at these types of prices.” read more

Bill Gates predicts oil companies ‘will be worth very little’ in 30 years — here’s why

Tom Huddleston Jr: Published Sat, Nov 6 20219:30 AM EDT

If you’re looking for an extremely long-term stock pick from billionaire Bill Gates, here it is: Avoid Big Oil.

As the world moves away from fossil fuels and adopts more clean and renewable energy sources, oil giants that have dominated markets for more than a century could be in trouble, the Microsoft co-founder said in a briefing at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, on Thursday. read more

A warning to Shell’s new No1 Enemy, Dan Loeb

By John Donovan

Last Sunday I was described in the Channel 4 TV documentary Joe Lycett vs The Oil Giant as Shell’s No1 Enemy and as Shell’s nightmare. (Transcript of the relevant segment)

Within days I seem to have lost both titles to a billionaire upstart, Daniel Loeb, who seems intent on breaking up Shell.

From my unique perspective on Shell senior management over recent decades, he is right to question competence and direction.

How has Shell ended up with a foe (me) operating a website using the top-level domain name royaldutchshellplc.com and as a consequence dealing on Shell’s behalf with job applications and all manner of other email correspondence meant for Shell? This is the humiliating situation Shell has been in since 2005. Evidently, no one at Shell has had the gumption to do anything to put an end to such a farce. read more

Big Oil’s Friday Feeling Will Pass

By Liam Denning | Bloomberg: 30 Oct 2021

Extracts

The inverse of the world’s anxiety about winter energy shortages is higher prices, portending a good fourth quarter to follow. As an added bonus, it provides a schadenfreude-inflected counterargument on days like Thursday. Exxon CEO Darren Woods mentioned it in his opening remarks to the House Oversight Committee to emphasize the difficulty of moving away from fossil fuels.

As an added added bonus, one of those oil majors moving a bit more quickly than most, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, has attracted the attention of an activist, Third Point LLC’s Dan Loeb, calling for it to split its green operations (plus gas) from its old oil business. read more

‘Unwelcome’ Shell will not attend Cop26, says boss

Emily Gosden The Times The oil giant Royal Dutch Shell was told that it was “not welcome” at Cop26, its boss has said.

The Anglo-Dutch energy group, which is one of the world’s biggest polluters but has committed to cut its emissions to net zero by 2050, said it would not be represented at the UN climate conference in Glasgow.

“We were told that we were not welcome, so we will not be there,” Ben van Beurden, the company’s chief executive, said yesterday in comments that provoked debate about whether such companies should have a seat at the table in climate talks. read more

WITH the start of the COP26 climate conference now just days away…

Shell executives will probably prefer to dwell on Shell’s notable if slightly eyebrow-raising inclusion in a book just published by Jane Goodall, called The Book of Hope: A survival guide for an endangered planet.

In it, Goodall, the English primatologist and anthropologist, tells the story of Ben van Beurden, chief executive of the Royal Dutch Shell oil group, who it is claimed decided to support the 2015 Paris climate agreement because his 10-year-old daughter asked if it was true his company was destroying the planet. read more

Shell likely to miss own emission reduction goals, shareholder group says

Shell likely to miss own emission reduction goals, shareholder group says

Oct. 22, 2021 12:32 PM ETRoyal Dutch Shell plc (RDS.A)RDS.BBy: Carl SurranSA News Editor

  • Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.ARDS.B) is on track to miss its own emission reduction targets in the coming decades, according to a new analysis by Global Climate Insights.
  • Shell’s energy transition strategy “is still materially driven by fuels that will increase emissions, producing a growth strategy that will not truly align with a decarbonizing world,” the study says, as reported by Bloomberg.
  • The research casts doubt on Shell’s own climate goals as well as its ability to comply with a landmark Dutch court order earlier this year to cut emissions 45% by 2030 from 2019 levels.
  • Shell already had pledged to cut GHG emissions by 20% by 2030 and to net-zero by 2050, but GCI says the company will not meet the target established by the court ruling “and will instead increase net emissions by 4.4%.”
  • If Shell is to align with the 2015 Paris Agreement’s goals of keeping global temperature increases to 1.5 degrees Celsius, it needs to pursue growth beyond gas more aggressively, according to the report.
  • Seeking Alpha contributor Portfolio Navigator says the focus of Shell’s management on rapidly growing the dividend is “a boon for investors.”

    Shell on Path to Miss Own Emission Reduction Goals, Report Says

    Global Climate Insights study sees emissions rising by 2030
    Company says it fully intends to meet future targets

    Royal Dutch Shell Plc is on track to miss its own emission reduction targets in the coming decades, even as the company faces more stringent climate requirements from a court ruling, a new study shows.

    The energy giant is seeking to gradually reduce its carbon emissions, with the goal of achieving net-zero by 2050. Shell isn’t forecast to achieve its goals after 2022, according to the report by Global Climate Insights. read more

    Oil And Gas Companies Will Never Truly Be Carbon Neutral

    Oil And Gas Companies Will Never Truly Be Carbon Neutral

    • Oil and gas companies are pushing a net-zero narrative, but their pledges may not live up to true carbon neutrality.
    • Carbon neutral oil and gas is largely reliant on the murky world of carbon credits and carbon offsets.
    • The lack of standardization and transparency within the carbon credit market has drawn a lot of criticism.

    The energy transition, net-zero pledges, and increased investor pressure on oil and gas companies to slash emissions have given rise to the latest trend in energy markets—the arrival of the ‘carbon neutral’ oil barrel and the ‘carbon neutral’ liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo.

    Oil and gas firms have started to offer those so-called carbon neutral oil and gas shipments. And buyers are lapping them up as they themselves are also pressured by investors and their own carbon reduction pledges to procure lower-emission energy supply. read more
