Oil majors will now realize plans for green investment fund

Seven of the world's largest oil companies will, according to Reuters, present the details for a new investment fund this Friday. The green fund will invest in technologies that contribute to renewable energy and limit greenhouse gas emissions.

Several of the world's largest oil companies are now on the brink of launching an investment fund for renewable energy.
