Reducing transport emissions

The transport sector produced nearly 8 Gt CO2-equivalent of direct greenhouse gas emissions in 2017 and was responsible for 24% of total energy-related CO2 emissions. Around 75% of these emissions originated from road transport, including passenger cars, trucks and buses. The aviation and marine sectors each account for 11% of total transport emissions – but they are growing fast and their emissions are much harder to abate.

What OGCI is doing

OGCI is exploring how we can best contribute towards significant CO2 emissions reductions throughout the transport sector. We aim to harness our industry expertise to develop a portfolio of solutions for the short and long term – with a particular focus on challenging areas such as heavy-duty trucks, marine vessels and international aviation.

OGCI is currently focusing on four areas:


Transport efficiency and electrification
(OGCI Climate Investments and individual member companies)


Low carbon liquid fuels
(Transport Workstream)


Hydrogen in long-haul trucking
(Transport Workstream)


Closing the carbon cycle through mobile carbon capture in ships 
(Transport Workstream)

OGCI’s role in
decarbonizing transport

Developing a portfolio of solutions


What OGCI member companies are doing to reduce transport emissions

Member companies are focusing on everything from alternative fuels and mobile carbon capture to building out charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

EQUINOR – Testing the world’s first carbon-free ammonia-fuelled supply vessel

Equinor is modifying a vessel that supplies Norwegian offshore platforms, so it can cover long distances fuelled by carbon-free ammonia.

BP – Building the UK’s largest EV charging network

BP is now rolling out 150kW ultra-rapid chargers on BP forecourts, with the aim of developing the largest nationwide ultra-fast public charging network.

What OGCI Climate Investments is doing to reduce transport emissions

We invest in technologies that increase efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions in transport.
