Ecopetrol is very aware of the effects of climate change worldwide, the need to limit global warming to well below 2°C, to continue its efforts to limit it to 1.5°C, and as such is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and to developing ambitious and significant actions for the reduction and compensation of GHGs.
To achieve this, Ecopetrol will reduce its GHG emissions by 20% for the year 2030 under a business as usual scenario. This goal is in line with Colombia's contribution to the Paris Agreement and SDG Number 13 - Climate Action.
Ecopetrol’s Climate Change Strategy is in line with the national government's policies and plans. This strategy focuses on maintaining a low carbon operation and reducing vulnerability to climate variability and change.
