Energy transition plan
This is our action plan with short-term actions and medium-term ambitions necessary to realise our ambition of becoming net zero by 2050.
Published 22 March 2022Download the plan (PDF)
Johan Sverdrup is the third largest oil field on the Norwegian continental shelf, with expected resources of 2.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent.
Carbon capture, utilisation and storage
Equinor is a pioneer within carbon capture and storage, where we stop CO2 reaching the atmosphere by storing carbon safely and permanently under the sea bed.
Electrification of platforms
Electrification means replacing a fossil-based power supply with renewable energy, enabling a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from our offshore oil and gas production.
To get there. Together
Our ambition is to continue to supply energy to society with lower emissions and net zero by 2050. But we can not do the job alone.
Sustainability in Equinor
In Equinor, we agree that the transition to a more sustainable energy system is taking place too slowly. We are working to accelerate the transformation of the world’s energy systems to drive decarbonisation.
At the 2022 Universum student survey Equinor was awarded #1 amongst engineering students, #2 amongst business students and #3 amongst IT students.
