Swedish oil firm Lundin Petroleum AB said Jan. 27 it will seek to make its operations carbon neutral by 2030, cutting emissions from operations, boosting energy efficiency and developing carbon capture mechanisms.
The board also proposed to change the company's name to Lundin Energy AB, it said in a statement.
The company also seeks to invest in renewable energy projects as a means to replace its own net electricity consumption, provided that this will generate a good return, Lundin said.
"We have a target of 2030 to reach carbon neutrality across our operations and we have set out a realistic and deliverable pathway towards this, which clearly differentiates us as an independent oil and gas producer in our industry."
Lundin did not immediately provide cost or investment estimates for its plans. The company is due to present its fourth-quarter earnings, as well as a detailed strategy update, on Jan. 31.
