    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.

    Identifying and assessing water sources

    March 2014

    This guide presents a systematic process for the onshore industry to select water sources that best meet project needs within the broader context of local or regional water management. The guide is applicable to both new projects and existing operations and uses case studies to provide practical examples of the process stages outlined. The document forms an integral part of IPIECA’s 2013 Water Management Framework and complements existing IPIECA guidance on the Biofuels and water nexus (2012). Later in 2014 a further companion document will be launched on optimizing water use through efficiency.

    IPIECA-GEMI Water Risk Assessment Tools Webinar and Workshop: Outcomes Summary

    February 2014

    In late 2013, IPIECA co-hosted a webinar and workshop with the Global Environmental Management Initiative (GEMI) focused on water risk assessment tools, including the IPIECA Global Water Tool (GWT) for Oil and Gas, a customised version of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Global Water Tool, the GEMI Local Water Tool (LWT)™, and the GEMI LWT™ for Oil and Gas. The webinar and workshop featured company testimonials and case studies, interactive breakout sessions, and facilitated discussions around key considerations for applying the tools based on the experiences gained by companies over the past two years. These key learnings have been summarized in this document to assist new and current users in implementing emerging good practices that will result in effective and comprehensive water risk assessment for their companies.

    The Global Initiative: partnership for enhanced oil spill response

    January 2014

    A fact sheet from a series developed by IPIECA and OGP to demonstrate the oil and gas industry’s present and future contribution to sustainable development. Prepared in advance of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) and updated in January 2014. While the oil and gas industry works to prevent oil spills, it also remains prepared by developing comprehensive contingency plans in cooperation with governments. These ensure a rapid response to anticipate and minimize the impacts of oil spills.
