🤝 Partners in Change
Over the last few months, Caterpillar and Chevron partnered to bring low-carbon solutions to market. Union Pacific and Progress Rail, a Caterpillar company, partnered to use a biodiesel blend in locomotives. Fedex partners with ChargePoint to biuld out the charging infrastructure required for the FedEx electric fleet.
American Airlines announced an anchor partnership in Breakthrough Energy Catalyst to accelerate clean energy technologies. American Airlines will invest $100 million to commercialize sustainable aviation fuel and other clean technology.
Strategic partners enable and accelerate the change that is needed across industries.
This week is no different. Equinor and Rosneft are partnering to reduce methane flaring, streamline greenhouse gas reporting, and evaluate other low-carbon solutions. The low-carbon solutions could be renewables, hydrogen, or carbon capture and storage.
“Equinor aims to proactively support emissions reductions wherever we invest based on our decades of experience from Norway. We are happy to work together with Rosneft and share best practice to address climate change,” says Al Cook, executive vice president for Exploration and Production International at Equinor.
Emerson announced a strategic partnership with BayoTech to accelerate the delivery of hydrogen around the world.
“Across the globe, industries and organizations are searching for sustainable solutions to solve their most pressing problems,” said Mike Train, chief sustainability officer of Emerson. “Emerson’s agreement with BayoTech accelerates the development and adoption of hydrogen at scale as a critical step forward in diversifying our global energy mix.”
Planet has partnered with Climate TRACE joining NGO's, technology companies, and universities to track greenhouse gas (GHG) emission sources in detail. Climate TRACE has 50+ collaborating organizations inlcuding Blue Sky Analytics, (carbon)plan, WattTime, RMI, and many others to increase industry emissions transparency.
“Today, much of our climate emissions data come from sources that are self-reported, incomplete, imprecise or out of date – and that limits their practical use,” said Andrew Zolli, Planet’s Vice President of Sustainability and Global Impact. “Steering us toward a lower-carbon, more sustainable future requires trusted, real-time indicators that illuminate the behavior of climate-linked systems — and that’s exactly what Climate TRACE is producing with our data,” he added.
It is critical that the energy, transportation, and technology industries take a wide view of potential local and global partners. Strategic partners may unlock new markets and solve the toughest problems with capital, relationships, and resources.
