EQUINOR follows the Nordic tradition of exploring beyond the horizon to shape the future of a global market. The Norwegian company develops oil, gas, wind and solar energy in over 30 countries, and is an active advocate of the Paris Climate Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals. Equinor has pledged to cut carbon emissions by 40 percent by 2030, 70 percent by 2040, and to near zero by 2050. It’s establishing a framework to create the long-term value that leads to a low-carbon future — and collaboration is key. Along with a network of like-minded partners, Equinor plans to invest 50 billion Norwegian kroner (more than $5bn) to undertake large-scale industrial measures to reduce its carbon footprint, including energy efficiency, digitalisation and electrification initiatives. The BV judging panel recognises Equinor’s climate-action contributions with the 2019 award for Most Responsible Energy Corporate Leadership (Nordics).
