Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
Since 1970 when the world’s first Earth Day took place, 1 billion individuals mobilised for the future of our planet, with 75,000+ partners working to drive positive action (Earthday.org, 2022).
All year round, we are committed to designing the global energy transition and playing our part to combat climate change and create a greener, net zero world for all.
This year our teams across the globe are working together to play their part, uniting to make change and shape a brighter future.
