How can carbon offsets support a lower-carbon future?


As part of our ambition to achieve Net Zero Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) across wholly-owned operated assets by 2050, we identify and focus on five key pillars to support our efforts.


Energy efficiency

11 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent


Methane and flaring reductions

1 million metric ton of CO2 equivalent


Renewable energy sources

14 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent


Carbon capture and storage

11 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent


Carbon offsets

16 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent


Carbon offsets can be done by:


  • Developing nature-based solutions like planting mangroves
  • Using carbon credits, which are tradable instruments backed by projects that can result in CO2 emission reductions.


To date, we have planted 24 million mangrove seedlings, with a target of 300 million mangrove trees by 2035 in the Kingdom and another 350 million trees internationally. 


We also support the development of a Saudi-based regional voluntary carbon-credit market, through our participation in the first two regional carbon-credit auctions to help meet the world’s growing energy demand while working to reduce GHG emissions.


We continue working toward enabling pathways to support a lower-carbon future.
