Former BP chief executive Bob Dudley first chaired the Oil & Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) as part of the routine rotation of member companies’ chief executives to lead the group.

“After I retired [in March 2020], I was asked would I mind continuing on in a transition role. That was two years ago. I’m still working on it, still very much committed and the activity levels have just really moved up with what we’re doing,” Dudley tells Upstream.
