Planting an oak in Aberdeen is a testament to our deep-rooted history here


External Affairs

In honour of the EIC’s 80th anniversary, CEO Stuart Broadley and senior representatives from the global EIC team gathered in Aberdeen to plant an oak tree, symbolising our deep roots in the UK and globally as the energy supply chain’s voice.

Marking the start of the EIC’s Oak Jubilee celebrations, Stuart Broadley planted the tree within the grounds of the Norwood Hall Hotel in Aberdeen on 1 February 2023.

Mr Broadley said: “Since 1943, the EIC has grown to become a powerful global voice and partner to the world’s energy supply chain. Originally focused on oil and gas and the UK, we diversified to cover all energy sectors in 1981 and started our international growth journey in 1995. We now have 120 amazing staff located around the world in London, Rio, Houston, Dubai and Kuala Lumpur.

“Planting an oak tree in Aberdeen, where many long-serving members are based, is a testament to our deep-rooted history here. Aberdeen is also a perfect location for our celebratory oak tree as our flagship event to facilitate export opportunities for members, Energy Exports Conference, is held here every year.”

Planting the tree is also significant as it kicks off the EIC’s environmental, social and governance plans to increasingly offset its emissions through global tree-planting programmes and by supporting the World Wide Fund for Nature, which works in wilderness preservation and reducing human impact on the environment.

This report offers comprehensive insights into key regional markets and highlights the potential opportunities.




EIC Insight Report: CCUS

The strengths of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) lie in its applicability across all emitting industries, and its harmony with oil and gas infrastructure. With over 200 developments announced since 2020, the momentum is undeniable. This report looks at the supply chain’s strengths and needs and explores key regions and policies. It also details EIC analysis of UK carbon capture capabilities.
