As the climate crisis threatens to provoke an energy crisis, the world should approach decarbonization carefully to prevent artificial acceleration of ‘greening’ the international agenda at the expense of true sustainability, the Secretary General of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) has said.


Other speakers who joined the specially convened Gas Market Dialogue organized by the International Energy Forum (IEF) on 28 October, included Dr Tawfiq e-Elahi Chowdhury Bir Bikram, Adviser (Minister) to the Prime Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Affairs of Bangladesh, Shri Hardeep Singh Puri, Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas & Housing and Urban Affairs of India, George Miculescu, State Secretary, Ministry of Energy of Romania, Kamal Abbasov, Deputy Minister of Energy of Azerbaijan, Amos Hochstein, Senior Advisor for Global Energy Security at the Department of State, U.S., Mr Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies, Mr Charif Souki, Executive Chairman of Board, Tellurian Inc. and the Pulitzer Prize-winning speaker Mr Dan Yergin, Vice Chairman of IHS Markit.


Welcoming the participants, Joseph McMonigle, Secretary General of the IEF, said: “We need to keep making progress on climate action while at the same time ensure we have the energy supplies today to power development and growth. The world urgently needs more investment and energy supplies, new technologies to mitigate carbon emissions, and adaptation support to vulnerable countries.”
