Voices on GOGEL

“We welcome the publication of Urgewald’s Global Oil and Gas Exit List. We find it incredibly useful to identify actors that are involved in activities that are not in line with our climate strategy. It will be a key resource for implementing our decision to exit from the oil and gas companies that do not have a science-based transition pathway by 2030.”
La Banque Postale

“This is the database we have all been waiting for. It is public, it is meticulously researched and it is an essential tool to help us end the age of fossil fuels.”
Tom Kruse, Rockefeller Brothers Fund

“We have been very impressed with the quality of Urgewald’s Global Coal Exit List and are excited to see that it is now providing a similar tool on the Oil and Gas industry.”
Ostrum Asset Management

“French and European financial market participants will have to report the exposure of their portfolio to companies active in the fossil fuel sector. To help financial actors identify these companies, the GOGEL tool is eagerly awaited by the actors. The various criteria included in the list and the fact that ISIN are available are a very valuable and useful information to help financial actors implement their climate commitments”.
Pauline Becquey, Managing Director, Finance for Tomorrow

“From 2020, Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale selects the Global Coal Exit List to define its plan for phasing out coal. Confidence is renewed with the publication of GOGEL to define new commitments on oil & gas.”
Carole Le Moaligou, CSR Officer Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale

“GOGEL makes data available not only on pure play exploration companies, but also on the ones that are at the forefront of upstream expansion and new infrastructure development, which is all the more critical to following the most recent IEA guidelines for net zero. It is a one-of-a-kind resource for financial institutions that want to finance the energy transition and manage climate-related risks in their portfolios.”
Charlotte Gardes, Expert member of the Scientific Committee of the Observatory for Sustainable Finance
