Accelerating action: an SDG Roadmap for the oil and gas sector is an initiative led by IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for advancing environmental and social performance, in collaboration with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
The Roadmap identifies how IPIECA, as an industry association, and oil and gas companies working within the sector, can work towards a low-emissions future while contributing to a healthier and more prosperous world aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Roadmap highlights 10 SDGs on which the industry can have significant impact by driving innovations in its own operations and across the supply chain. These 10 SDGs underpin eight impact pathways grouped into three interconnected systemic themes of climate, nature and people.
The Roadmap impact pathways are made up of over 90 short, medium and long-term actions for IPIECA and oil and gas companies which involve scaling up good practices on climate action, environmental responsibility and social performance.
This SDG Roadmap for the oil & gas sector provides a vision, direction, and platform for collaboration to inspire and guide the sector through the critical transformations that will need to occur in order to realize a sustainable energy system providing reliable and affordable net-zero carbon energy for all.
