Overview
The Fossil Fuel Reduction Project is a multi-funder and multi-year project of the New Venture Fund. Its purpose is to reduce the impacts on people, wildlife, water, soil, and air from the development of unconventional types of oil. The extraction and processing of unconventional oils in North America have higher carbon intensity and other environmental and human impacts. To ensure a level consistent with global scenarios for atmospheric concentrations of carbon not exceeding 450 parts per million, about two-thirds of oil reserves should be kept in the ground.
