Internal documents show Exxon’s plan to substantially boost carbon emissions

Irving-based Exxon Mobil Corp. has been planning to increase annual carbon-dioxide emissions by as much as the output of the entire nation of Greece, an analysis of internal documents reviewed by Bloomberg shows, setting one of the largest corporate emitters against international efforts to slow the pace of warming.

The drive to expand both fossil-fuel production and planet-warming pollution comes at a time when some of Exxon’s rivals, such as BP Plc and Royal Dutch Shell Plc, are moving to curb oil and zero-out emissions. Exxon’s own assessment of its $210 billion investment strategy shows yearly emissions rising 17% by 2025, according to the internal documents.

The largest U.S. oil producer has never made a commitment to lower oil and gas output or set a date by which it will become carbon neutral, and its near-term plans have been disrupted by fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Exxon has also never

‘Carbon copy’ of Ahuriri business hub to be piloted in Hastings

The Hastings District Council has voted to use money from its Covid-19 Recovery Contingency Fund to fund a pilot “carbon copy” of Ahuriri’s Hawke’s Bay Business Hub.

The initiative had councillors divided at the operations and monitoring committee meeting on Thursday but ultimately recommendations were passed to pilot a hub in Hastings.

The hub will initially operate out of the Tribune Precinct in Queen St East then could move to the corner of Karamu Rd and Queen St. It will be piloted from October until June 2021.

The council will fund $70,000 of the total $90,000 cost from the $1 million Covid-19 Recovery Contingency Fund and the remainder from the Economic Development Fund.

The Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, Napier City Council and Hastings District Council contribute $100,000 funding annually to Business Hawke’s Bay, which operates a hub in Ahuriri.

Hawke’s Bay Business Hub is home to more than 16 business

BUSINESS GETTING GREENER: Big business is coming to an agreement that the U.S., and the world, must dramatically slash greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, and CEOs want to ensure a carbon price, not heavy-handed mandates, is what gets them there.

Business Roundtable, a Washington group comprising the CEOs of leading U.S. companies, lent support Wednesday to a price on carbon as a centerpiece of new climate policy principles. Though they don’t back a specific pricing approach (like a carbon tax or cap-and-trade), the CEOs are clear they think the market, not regulation, is best suited to prompt emissions cuts.

The CEOs of dozens of major European companies are also stressing carbon pricing must play a central

Business Roundtable backs a price on carbon

With Daniel Lippman

BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE ENDORSES A ‘PRICE ON CARBON’: The Business Roundtable, one of Washington’s top trade groups, announced this morning that it will back efforts to fight climate change that include a “price on carbon.” The trade group didn’t endorse any particular legislation, but the announcement is the latest signal that much of corporate America might prefer a seat at the table the next time Washington takes up a climate bill to trying to kill it outright. (The House passed a cap-and-trade bill in 2009 that failed to make it through the Senate.)

Business Roundtable urged policymakers to “ensure that U.S. companies are not at a disadvantage from carbon pricing policies that may be implemented abroad” as part of any effort to reduce emissions. It also urged Washington to commit to “at least a doubling of federal funding” for research and development of technologies to reduce
