Here's what people said about IP Week 2020:

Steve Holliday FREng FEI, President, Energy Institute:
'We aspire for IP week to be the pre-eminent event for thinking, discussing and creating collaboration in tackling the dual challenge of economic development and climate change.'

Bernard Looney FREng FEI, CEO, BP:
'I am very happy to see the energy transition as a big part of this year's conference as we head towards COP26 in Glasgow. That makes me very proud to be a Fellow of the Energy Institute – and prouder still that BP is a big supporter.'

Al Cook, Executive Vice President, Equinor:
'Events like [IP Week] are absolutely critical. It’s very important that we get different voices in the room, rather than different voices shouting at each other from different rooms. In a polarised world, it’s really important that we have panels that look not just at the challenges but also the solutions.'

Ben Ratner, Senior Director, Environmental Defense Fund:
'Climate urgency permeated the room at IP Week 2020 in a way I haven't experienced before at an oil and gas conference.'

Joan MacNaughton CB HonFEI, Chair, The Climate Group:
'It’s really fantastic that the energy transition, the need to address climate change, has been put front and centre of the [IP Week] agenda. So I want to congratulate the sector and the people who’ve organised the event for taking that very bold step.'

Katherine Dunn, Associate Editor, Fortune magazine:
'If [IP Week] felt like a mediated confrontation between the tensions of public pressure over climate change, and what the future of energy companies will look like, it was still a notable shift.'

Anna Kachkova, freelance journalist:
'The way climate dominated this year’s IP Week illustrated the increasing sense of urgency among the oil and gas industry in addressing the issue.'

Matthew Carr, Reporter, Bloomberg:
'Last year, protesters glued their hands to the doors of the conference venue complaining of record winter heat. This year, climate experts were invited in and given the floor.'
