Statoil advocates carbon pricing and methane reduction efforts

Helge Lund, Statoil CEO, addresses the company's climate commitments today at the UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit in New York.

“Fighting climate change is vital,” says Lund. “More than 80% of greenhouse gas emissions are linked to the use of fossil fuels. Statoil has a clear objective—to be recognised as the most carbon-efficient oil and gas producer in the world.”

Today, Lund will address the importance of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Oil and Gas Partnership on behalf of the founding partners at Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s press conference at the UN Climate Summit in New York. He will also announce that Statoil has joined the partnership.
