Member Companies of the OGCI
About the Oil and Gas Climate initiative ... The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative is designed to catalyze practical action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is led by the heads of 10 oil and gas companies that aim to lead the industry response to climate change, OGCI member companies – BP, CNPC, Eni, Pemex, Reliance Industries, Repsol, Saudi Aramco, Shell, Statoil and Total which together represent one fifth of the world’s oil and gas production. The OGCI was established following discussions during the 2014 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, and was officially launched at the UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit in New York in September 2014.
Noticably missing from this multi-company climate initiative are the big American companies like Exxon-Mobil, Chevron
