Join us for a critical press conference addressing the failure of the five major North Sea oil and gas-producing countries – Norway, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark – to fulfill their climate commitments. For the first time ever, we have developed a set of benchmarks for rating North Sea countries’ oil and gas production policies by their level of alignment with the Paris Agreement. The press conference will unveil a comprehensive report developed by Oil Change International, titled Troubled Waters: How North Sea Countries Are Fueling Climate Disaster, detailing discrepancies between these countries’ actions and the urgent need to phase out fossil fuels as outlined in the Paris Agreement and recent COP28 decisions. 

None of the five North Sea countries are on track to meet the 1.5-degree C warming limit set by the Paris Agreement or the COP28 decision to transition away from fossil fuels.
