Russia, not the world. 4 Greenhouse gas emitters, however, say they are targeting carbon neutrality by 2060.
Rosneft, with a nearly 20% stake in BP, has achieved its emission targets “through many actions” such as low-carbon power generation, elimination of routine gas flaring, energy savings, and carbon capture and storage technologies. Said. ..
By 2025, the share of natural gas in total hydrocarbon production will increase to 25% as part of efforts to reach that goal.
