In the polluters series, the Guardian has collaborated with leading scientists and NGOs to reveal the fossil fuel companies that are perpetuating the climate crisis.
According to research, the top 20 coal, oil and gas firms on the list have contributed 35% of all energy-related carbon dioxide and methane worldwide, totalling 480bn tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (GtCO2e), since 1965.
Those identified range from investor-owned firms – household names such as Chevron, Exxon, BP and Shell – to state-owned companies including Saudi Aramco and Gazprom.
We’d like you to help us understand more about these fossil fuel companies.
Do you work for a fossil fuel company? If so, we’d like to hear from you. What’s it like to work in the industry? Do you think there’s enough recognition about the impact of fossil fuels on climate change? Do you have any information you’d like to share about your work and its effect on the environment? What more could your company do that it isn’t doing? What new laws, government policies or market regulations could accelerate the industry’s transition away from fossil fuels towards renewable energy? We’re interested in hearing about projects and initiatives that are trying to tackle the issue, too.
