From 'Oil and Gas' to 'Energy and Services'

Oil and gas companies can lead the decarbonization transition. But only if they commit to achieving net-zero emissions with purposeful actions today. How? By:

  • Augmenting the insights and know-how of their people with new technologies to decarbonize their core business and accelerate the uptake of cleaner energy solutions in their own industry and beyond.
  • Doubling down on innovation. Leaders will invest in new and scalable solutions, services, operating models and business models—all geared for a low-carbon future.
  • Recognizing they need the help of their customers, particularly those that are heavily dependent on hydrocarbons, and adjacent sectors to achieve their net zero goals. Collaboration takes on new urgency in a low-carbon world.

Accenture—with its deep industry expertise, insights and global ecosystem—is uniquely positioned to bring together the human talent, technologies, innovation and partnerships that are needed to help oil and gas players navigate the journey to net-zero.

Oil and gas companies can lead the transition. But only if they take the right actions today and set the right ambitions for tomorrow.
