Natural gas is the natural step to net zero, and the natural partner to renewables.
We support the goal of the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rises to well below 2 degrees Celsius. At Woodside, we want to be net zero for our operations by 2050.
Natural gas has a significant role to play in the world's energy transformation as the lowest emission hydrocarbon fuel.
Independent expert analysis by Environmental Resources Management (ERM), critically reviewed by Australia's CSIRO, shows Woodside’s Browse and Scarborough gas projects could avoid 650 million tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions between 2026 and 2040, by replacing higher emission fuels in countries that need our energy.
This means for every tonne of greenhouse gas (GHG) emitted in Australia from our projects, about 4 tonnes of emissions are reduced globally.
Renewables are also a big part of the journey to net zero, and we are investing in lower and zero carbon energy sources for the future.
Because it’s reliable, gas is the natural partner to renewables, helping the lights stay on and the fridge stay cold when the wind isn't blowing or the sun isn’t shining.
As Australia’s leading natural gas producer, we’re part of a better future.
