DNV Signs MoU with EGPC to Support Efforts to Set Science-Based Targets for Net Zero Goals

DNV, the independent energy expert and assurance provider, strengthened its commitment to tackling climate change through signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) to support its efforts to set science-based targets for its net zero goals.

The EGPC is setting these targets within the framework of Egypt Vision 2030, the national plan to reach the country’s sustainable development goals (SDGs), in line with the 1.5°C pathway of the Paris Climate Agreement.

The MoU signing ceremony in Cairo was witnessed by Tarek El Molla, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, and Hilde Klemetsdal, Norway’s Ambassador to Egypt and Libya.

The MoU aims to provide technical advisory support to establish EGPC’s strategy and execute its plan to align with Egypt Vision 2030, covering all dimensions of the country’s SDGs. Both parties will identify the economic, social, and environmental risks, opportunities and impacts of EGPC’s activities for all relevant stakeholders. It will also work on enhancing EGPC’s reporting system and build awareness of sustainable development reporting.

Moreover, DNV will support the company in delivering studies related to net zero emissions and carbon capture, utilization and storage projects, as well as deliver training programs for the EGPC sustainability committee, management & affiliated companies.

“DNV follows best practices from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)’s global survey to align with the UN SDGs). Our extensive experience and expertise in the energy transition will help EGPC achieve their goals, and, in turn, feed into Egypt’s decarbonization strategy, which is key to reaching the required emissions reduction”, explained Santiago Blanco, Executive Vice-president and Regional Director for Southern Europe, Middle East and Latin America, Energy Systems at DNV.
