A global movement demanding that Equinor end all exploration and development of new oil and gas, and fully transition to renewable energy.

Did you know that 99% of the energy Equinor produces is from fossil fuels?

Norway´s state-owned oil company Equinor is aggressively pursuing new oil and gas fields all over the world. Instead of transitioning to clean, green energy in line with climate science, its investments, workforce and capital are tied up in fossil fuel projects.

Why we’re stopping Equinor 

Norwegian oil company Equinor is aggressively exploring and developing new and existing oil and gas fields globally. Knowledge about its global operations are limited to many, which allows the state-owned company to control the narrative and push a false image of its transition towards renewable energy.

The truth about
Equinor's global projects

Even though Equinor spent millions on rebranding itself away from Statoil to signal how it was moving towards becoming a «broad energy company», it is still very much a fossil fuel company. More than 99% of all the energy Equinor produces are fossil fuels, while less then 1% is renewable energy. Equinor is painting a false picture of its effort to become a climate-neutral company by 2050 by championing false climate solutions that actually prolong the life of oil and gas, like carbon capture and storage (CCS) and electrification of oil and gas production. This happens while the company is doubling down on more oil and gas.


Equinor’s Energy Transition Plan, published in 2022, aims to give an overview of its action to become a net zero company by 2050. It lacks information on how the company plans to meet its carbon intensity targets in 2030, 2035 and 2050. Equinor has stated that it plans to continue to increase production of oil and gas until 2026, and want 2030 production levels to be 'on par' with today.

Investments in renewable energy

It is clear that governments and companies need to cut emissions to reach climate targets. However, Equinor is hiding behind low-carbon solutions like carbon capture (CCS), blue hydrogen and platform electrification. In 2023, only 17,6% of Equinor´s investments went to renewables.

Socio-environmental impacts

New investments in oil and gas projects will in many countries hurt the local population and local economies, from the fishing industry in Argentina to the public spending in the UK. Additionally, it ties up capital that should be used for renewable energy investments.  

Equinors reach

Equinor is active in 30 countries across the world, with operative oil fields in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. Not only is Norway’s majority state-owned oil and gas company continuing to aggressively extract oil and gas, it is also rapidly exploring new oil and gas fields all over the world. Equinor is pushing for continued fossil fuel dependency and thereby tying up local investments that could help the transition to renewable energy.

The consequences of Equinor

Equinor is producing oil and gas without consideration of marine life biodiversity, local communities and increased greenhouse gases and CO₂ emissions. Local communities who depend on income from tourism or industry are being left behind, capital that could be invested in renewable energy sources is tied up, and national governments are wavering from their climate goals. The consequences of Equinors operations can be seen and felt all over the world, from Norway and the UK, to Brazil and Argentina.
