"Overall, 83 of the focus companies (52 % of the total) assessed have announced an ambition to achieve net-zero by 2050 or sooner. However, roughly half of these commitments (44) do not cover the full scope of the companies’ most material emissions." 😐 https://t.co/pf4Mgev1hz

BIG OIL & WALL STREET: Goldman Sachs has nominated Jessica Uhl, the CFO of Royal Dutch Shell, to its board. If elected (most likely), she will be the top Big Oil executive inside Wall Street, three months after Lee Raymond resigned as a JPMorgan director https://t.co/p2A05f5ORf

Cool story by @dmitryZ_reuters: BP made $1.7bn in Q2 last year just from buying oil at dirt-cheap levels, storing it and selling it. (Glencore made $1.3bn in H1 via similar trades, according to new @JavierBlas and @jfarchy book) https://t.co/evQtTMkRPs

BP's trading arm made nearly $4 billion in 2020, according to a copy of an internal presentation seen by Reuters, almost equalling the record trading profit in 2019 despite the collapse in oil demand caused by the pandemic https://t.co/EuiREDbQIH #OOTT @bp_plc @dmitryZ_reuters https://t.co/wLI1K89Vv7

For anybody who remembers the 2007-8 financial crisis and its political aftermath in the UK, this recommendation from a government-sponsored review of financial regulation is just extraordinary. https://t.co/7bcu6ErCe8 https://t.co/HhqBEiMt0p

Just in case anyone thought Mark Carney/Brookfield's "net zero on an avoided emissions basis" idea held any water, I asked the UK's official climate experts @theCCCuk about the concept. They said: "We are clear that the UK’s net zero target cannot be met by 'avoided emissions'." https://t.co/nn0UBPnD1K

Biden’s likely action over #Khashoggi is a step-up relative to Trump’s Nov 2018 stance, which was effectively ‘wevs’. But similar upshot - US/Saudi relations too important to rock the boat to the degree of sanctioning a Crown Prince: https://t.co/14d5URDf2l

Shell's plan to square the circle between continued oil production and decarbonisation involves really quite a lot of carbon capture and offsetting: https://t.co/Wi6MwYGXfd https://t.co/L7Lk1kDdGz

On @Breakingviews: While BP’s strategy envisages major reductions in oil output and big pivots to renewables, Shell has set out a much more business-as-usual plan. Which one prevails will say something about the preoccupations of shareholders, says @gfhay https://t.co/6Pgp1q45jm

This is big news. Shell has just, for the first time, published a 1.5C scenario. "Sky 1.5 is a highly ambitious pathway that is still technically possible but extremely challenging." https://t.co/kO7GQbh3fv https://t.co/Q7qplYKkNe
