  • Saudi Arabia has ‘green vision’ at COP27, critics unmoved
“We have hugely ambitious goals and targets,” Saudi climate envoy Adel al-Jubeir said at the two-day Saudi Green Initiative Forum on COP27′s sidelines. “We want to be an example to the world in terms of what can be done.”  The effort is part of a large push by Saudi Arabia to make the case that the nation should be part of the transition to renewable energies while holding on to its role as the top global crude oil exporter.  Saudi Aramco plans to build the world’s biggest carbon capture and storage hub, which will store up to 9 million tons of carbon dioxide when its up and running in 2027.
