The Oil-Climate Index

The Oil-Climate Index (OCI) was developed to alert public and private stakeholders to the full array of oils’ climate impacts from various perspectives, with an eye toward informing investment, development, operations, and governance of the oil supply chain. The index provides new knowledge that these stakeholders can take into account to make more informed, strategic, and durable decisions throughout the oil sector. For instance, it can be used to analyze public policies to reduce oils’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
