杂谈

ConocoPhillips recognizes that human activity, including the burning of fossil fuels, is contributing to increased concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere that can lead to adverse changes in global climate. While uncertainties remain over the extent of human contributions and the timing and magnitude of future impacts, we are committed to taking action to expand our business planning processes to address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to develop greenhouse gas targets for our operations. Our commitment to sustainable development will provide the foundation for our actions.

Concerns continue to grow regarding the possible environmental and financial impacts of climate change. We recognize these concerns, and in the context of our business we face uncertain costs and outcomes associated with:

  • Developing technology, products and operating practices which reduce or avoid GHG emissions.
  • Responding to altered patterns of demand for products due to regulations designed to combat climate change, actual climate changes or changes in consumer attitudes toward products based on their associated GHG emissions.
  • Complying with government-mandated action.
  • Adapting our facilities or operational practices due to the physical consequences of changing climate.

No one entity can address these issues on its own, but ConocoPhillips will show leadership in finding pragmatic and sustainable solutions. In addition to taking actions within our own sphere of influence, we intend to play a constructive role in public policy dialogue to devise practical, equitable and cost-effective approaches to stabilize the concentration of GHG in the atmosphere. It is our view that mandatory national regulatory frameworks which link to international ones are most likely to achieve meaningful global GHG reductions. We will seek to encourage policy measures which deliver the following principles:

  • Slow, stop and ultimately reverse the rate of growth in global GHG emissions.
  • Establish a value for carbon emissions, which is transparent and relatively stable and sufficient to drive the changed behaviors necessary to achieve targeted emissions reductions.
  • Provide long-term certainty for investment decisions.
  • Encourage the development and deployment of innovative technology to help avoid or mitigate GHG emissions at all stages of the product life cycle.
  • Realistically match the pace and stringency of policy to the rate at which new technology or infrastructure changes can be developed and deployed.
  • Encourage energy efficiency at all stages of the product life cycle.
  • Inform and influence consumer preference toward less GHG-intensive consumption.
  • Encourage the deployment of carbon capture and storage as a practical near-term solution.
  • Avoid placing a disproportionate burden on any one business sector or consumer segment.
  • Support equitable international competition.
  • Ensure that early actions are not disadvantaged.
  • Avoid undue harm to the economy.


As economies around the world continue to develop, the growing global demand for energy must be met in concert with responsible actions on climate change. Balancing supply and demand will require more efficient use of energy and the full utilization of both conventional and innovative sources of energy into the foreseeable future. This will include renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydro, thermal and biomass, together with nuclear power and continued use of hydrocarbons in ways that lower the GHG impacts of oil, gas and coal.

Meeting the twin challenges of taking action on climate change and providing adequate and reliable supplies of energy will require technical innovation, resource commitments and responsible stewardship by energy producers and consumers alike. ConocoPhillips

康菲认识到人类活动,包括燃烧化石燃料,是造成大气中的温室气体浓度增加,可导致全球气候的不利变化。虽然不确定性对人类的贡献程度,时间和未来的影响程度依然存在,我们承诺将采取行动以扩大我们的业务规划进程,以解决温室气体(GHG)排放,并为我们的业务发展温室气体减排目标。我们致力于可持续发展,为我们提供了行动的基础。

关注继续增长,就可能出现的环境和财政的气候变化的影响。我们认识到这些问题,并在我们的业务,我们面临的不确定的费用和与成果方面:


开发技术,产品和经营做法,减少或避免温室气体排放。
回应的产品,由于设计应对气候变化,气候变化的实际,或对他们相关的温室气体排放量为基础的产品的消费观念的变化规则要求改变模式。
遵守政府规定的行动。
适应我们的设施或由于气候变化的实际后果业务做法。

没有一个实体可以自己处理这些问题,但康菲将显示在寻找务实和可持续的解决方案的领导。除了在我们自己的势力范围,以采取行动,我们打算在公共政策对话发挥建设性作用,制定切实可行,公平和具有成本效益的办法来稳定大气中温室气体浓度。我们认为,强制性的国家管理框架的连接国际的最有可能实现有意义的全球温室气体减少。我们将设法鼓励政策措施,提供下列原则:


延缓,阻止,最终扭转全球温室气体排放的增长速度。
建立一个碳排放,这是透明的,相对稳定和足够的价值,以推动改变行为必须实现减排目标。
提供长期投资决策长期的确定性。
鼓励创新技术的开发和部署,以帮助避免或减少温室气体的产品生命周期的所有阶段的排放量。
现实相匹配的速度和政策,严格以何种新技术或基础设施的变化可以开发和部署速度。
鼓励在产品生命周期的所有阶段的能源效率。
告知和影响消费者对减少温室气体密集的消费偏好。
鼓励碳捕获和作为一个实际的近期解决方案的存储部署。
避免对任何一个业务部门或消费市场不相称的负担。
支持公平的国际竞争。
早行动,确保处于不利地位。
避免不必要的伤害经济。

随着各经济体在世界各地不断发展,不断增长的全球能源需求必须得到满足,在有关气候变化采取负责任的行动音乐会。平衡供给和需求将需要更有效地使用能源和能源传统和创新的来源,在可预见的将来得到充分利用。这将包括诸如风能,太阳能,水能,热能和生物,核力量和碳氢化合物的方式继续使用可再生能源以及低的石油,天然气和煤炭的温室气体的影响。

会议对气候变化和提供足够和可靠的能源供应的行动将需要技术创新,资源承诺和能源生产者和消费者都负责任的管理的双重挑战。康菲计划,以应付
