Since 1988, 100 companies have been responsible for over 70% of the world’s carbon emissions, with 20 of those contributing to a third of global emissions.


The role that fossil fuel companies have to play in transitioning to a carbon neutral world is no secret, the challenge, however, is figuring out whether these companies should be included in our new renewable and carbon free world or consigned to the dustbin of history.
