BP’s chief economist Spencer Dale says everyone has a responsibility when it comes to steering the world towards a goal of zero net carbon emissions. He says energy companies like BP have a role to play in achieving cleaner energy, but that they cannot get too far ahead of governments and society. Dale adds that investing in new oil and gas fields is still important in terms of meeting energy demand in developing nations, while he says there is a growing mismatch between current emissions output and the wishes of society.
