In May, the International Energy Agency, an energy watchdog for richer countries, said investment in new fossil-fuel supply projects must immediately cease if the world is going to slash net carbon emissions to zero by 2050. Meanwhile, big oil companies have made moves to curb emissions and pivot toward renewable energy sources, spurred by pressure from investors, customers and in some cases governments and courts.
