The future is lower carbon and we have a vital role to play.

Additional oil and gas supply will be needed to meet rising energy demand over the next 20 years— including in scenarios aligned with the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

The International Energy Agency’s (IEA’s) Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS) projects that oil and gas will make up nearly half of global energy supply in 2040.

Reducing the carbon intensity of the energy billions of people rely on every day is a tremendous opportunity to advance the global net-zero ambitions of the Paris Agreement.

Chevron is a leader in reducing carbon intensity.

Chevron is in the bestperforming quartile of all oil and gas producers in
producing energy at a carbon intensity well below the
average of the global system.*

*Based on a comparison to IEA, World Energy Outlook 2018 data.

Driving Results and Delivering Progress​​
