A Sustainable Energy Future

KPC aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, power lives, and care for our planet.

KPC is committed to achieve Net-Zero by the year 2050 by actively reducing scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions from our global operations and continuing to be among the least emissions-intense oil and gas producers. We will continue to be a responsible hydrocarbons producer, and we will drive sustainability within our operations with least greenhouse gas emissions. Our strategy draws a roadmap for energy transition to 2050 through various new energy businesses and growth opportunities. These include carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS), gas flaring, biofuels, among others. KPC’s energy transition 2050 roadmap will enable the State of Kuwait to achieve its target of Net-Zero by 2060.

Getting to Net Zero

By actively tackling climate change, implementing effective water management strategies, and embracing waste management practices along with the circular economy, and lowering emissions, we are steadily progressing towards achieving a net-zero future.

1. Addressing Climate Change

  • KPC is among the least emissions intense oil and gas upstream producers, combined with a strong cost position.
  • The emissions from KPC’s new local and international refineries are competitive with its peers.
  • KPC and its subsidiaries have sufficient experience on Renewable Energy to be expanded to cover its operational requirements of solar energy (Scope 2).

Sedra 500 of Kuwait Oil Company, was the first solar power plant in the world which is used to operate electrical submersible pumps (ESP) to extract crude oil. It significantly lowers CO2 emissions that will be the equivalent of planting 500,000 trees and save approximately 500,000 barrels of oil over the course of 20 years.
