Climate change is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Whether you are young or old, working to solve this is one of the most inspiring actions of the 21st Century. ABL Group, working in renewables, oil & gas and maritime sectors, has already pledged itself to the UN Global Compact Network UK, where one of the four major areas of responsible business action is the environment, to achieve a more equitable society. Last year, recognising the significant part we play in the energy sector, we elevated the Group’s focus on energy transition, where the impact can be greatest in achieving a Net Zero world.
The group is committed to achieving ≥50% of our revenue from renewables, sustainability and energy transition activities by 2025. We are well on our way but recognise the need to accelerate these efforts. We have identified five major areas of focus for energy transition in addition to what we are doing already in renewables:
- Hydrogen / Ammonia Alternate Fuels
- Emissions / Audit Assessment Abatement
- Carbon Capture Utilisation & Storage (CCUS)
- Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience
We have developed, delivered and continue to evolve cutting-edge services within our group in every one of the above areas and invite you to connect with us in your energy transition journey.

Challenges and opportunity in going green
The road to net-zero is paved with opportunities for innovation and growth, unlocking the potential for the unknown across energy and oceans. However, as with any area of the unknown, there are challenges and risks in developing energy transition and sustainable solutions, which need to be addressed and managed from the outset.
- With increasing technologies under R&D, how to identify the right and feasible technology for your industry, project or operations
- Forecasting accurately the value creation and profit generated from a particular decarbonisation initiative
- Emission reduction and carbon footprint of existing infrastructure and fossil fuel industries
- Risk forecasting and HSEQ management around unknown and new technologies
- Experience and knowledge gap in what is still a young industry
