CALGARY, AB, Nov. 8, 2021 /CNW/ - The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) is calling for policy makers at COP26 to recognize the necessary role for natural gas and oil to meet growing global energy demand and the ambitions of the Paris Agreement.
Today countries around the world are struggling to provide their industries, businesses and citizens with affordable and reliable energy because they lack access to natural gas and oil. With this, we have seen a surge in coal use from both developing and developed nations along with increasing costs on food, electricity, travel and home heating.
To achieve the ambitions of the Paris Agreement, the world will need increased access to lower emission natural gas and oil, article 6 and industry's leading role in emissions reduction and clean-technology. It will be incredibly important for governments and the natural gas and oil industry to work collaboratively to ensure we meet our environmental and social outcomes.
CAPP will offer the following virtual press conference hosted as a video webcast on a Cision platform to answer questions from media:
Tuesday, November 9, 2021 ? 9:00 a.m. MST / 11:00 a.m. EST
Tim McMillan, President & CEO, Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers
