Carboun’s report and visual guide to energy and carbon emissions in the Arab world highlights the fact that after sub-Saharan Africa, the Arab world’s economy has the lowest energy efficiency record of any region in the world.

BP had been investing in carbon capture and storage (CCS) for more than a decade.
