With increasing focus on net-zero targets, including scope 3 emissions, many oil and gas companies are revaluating their portfolio mix.

Prior attempts to restructure the portfolio have been largely unsuccessful. What is different this time? What would be the ideal portfolio mix for an energy company? With the recent run-up in oil and gas prices, is it a good strategy to reduce oil/gas investments? What skills will oil and gas companies need to transform themselves into energy companies? What role will financial institutions have in accelerating this transition?
