On March 11, 2021, Resources for the Future (RFF) hosted a Policy Leadership Series event with bp CEO Bernard Looney. Since stepping into the role of CEO a year ago, Bernard has set a new ambition for bp to get to net zero by 2050 or sooner and launched a new strategy which will see the company pivot from an international oil company to an integrated energy company. RFF President and CEO Richard G. Newell discussed a range of energy and climate issues with Bernard, including bp’s recent ambition to help the world achieve decarbonization goals and the role of “greening” companies in the energy transition.

The Policy Leadership Series is RFF’s flagship event series, serving as a public forum on timely environmental, energy, and natural resources topics, and bringing together some of the most influential decisionmakers and policy thinkers of our day.
