    Operating Management System Framework for controlling risk and delivering high performance in the oil and gas industry

    June 2014

    This new Operating Management System Framework is designed to help companies define and achieve performance goals and stakeholder benefits, while managing the broad and significant range of risks inherent in the oil and gas industry. “Operating” applies to every type of upstream or downstream company activity, from construction to decommissioning, throughout the entire value chain and lifecycle of the business and its products. The Framework offers an integrated approach and the flexibility to address some or all of a wide range of risks, impacts or threats related to occupational health and safety; environmental and social responsibility; process safety, quality and security. The degree of integration and the scope of an OMS will be determined by individual companies and will differ depending on their activities, organisational structure and management system maturity.

    Community Grievance Mechanisms toolbox

    May 2014

    This toolbox enables oil and gas companies to create, implement and raise awareness of Community Grievance Mechanisms (CGMs). Wherever oil and gas companies do business, engaging with affected communities and responding to their concerns is essential to operating successfully whilst ensuring respect for human rights. Processes that allow concerns to be raised and remedied—also known CGMs—are an important method of achieving this aim. The IPIECA CGM toolbox is based on the operational experiences of IPIECA member companies and is relevant for both companies who have existing CGM processes and those seeking to establish a CGM. More broadly, this toolbox encourages the implementation of the Access to Remedy pillar outlined in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Prepared in advance of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) and updated in January 2014.
