Oil is the second biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions after coal. It’s responsible for about 27 per cent of the CO2 we release into the atmosphere. If we don’t start moving beyond oil now, the costs we pass on to our children will be unbearable.

We’re campaigning for a world beyond oil - a world that's cleaner, healthier and more peaceful. We won’t get there overnight, but we need to make a start…
