    The oil and gas industry is embracing clean technology more than ever and traditional energy companies have moved past initial skepticism of renewable energy sources and sustainability initiatives to become increasingly bigger players in the energy transition. Every year the volume of investing and partnering in diverse cleantech areas, including renewables, batteries, hydrogen, water treatment, or EV charging, continues to grow. This growth of new technologies and investment opportunities requires the development and implementation of a clear strategy for cleantech investments that finds the right balance between sustainability goals and corporate returns.
