Accelerating action: An SDG Roadmap for the oil and gas sector
Who’s behind it? – IPIECA & WBCSD
How can it help? – 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). This new initiative identifies how IPIECA, as a global oil and gas 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 was developed in response to the critical need for concerted action and coordinated solutions as the world approaches the 2030 deadline to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic reversing SDG progress in many areas. The Roadmap outlines over 90 actions – mapped against SDG targets – which go beyond business as usual and aim to catalyze the realization of the SDGs.
