Our series, Energy Matters, brings industrialists and investors together to debate the big themes that matter across the energy value chain. Our aim is to build a community and to share learnings as we navigate the major challenges and opportunities created as we race towards carbon net-zero.

Through our conversations, we focus on the most impactful initiatives that both reduce carbon whilst generating shareholder returns – a tough ask. 

Our first interview is with Lord Browne, who is best known for his role as the CEO of BP between 1995 and 2007, leading the company through a transformational period of expansion and diversification. He is a visionary on climate, who has played a significant role in influencing the oil and gas industry's approach across business, politics and finance. John is currently the chairman of Pattern Energy, one of the largest independent wind development businesses, and is co-founder and chairman of BeyondNetZero, a climate growth equity venture backed by General Atlantic, targeting investments in companies providing solutions to climate change.
