IPIECA has been working with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) on a report - Mapping the Oil and Gas Industry to the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas (“the Atlas”). The Atlas is being released as a draft for public comment, as we believe the document will benefit from further review and input.
The Atlas explores the links between the oil and gas industry and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and seeks to facilitate a shared understanding of how the oil and gas industry can most effectively support the achievement of the SDGs. It maps the industry’s existing contributions and encourages companies to identify additional opportunities to help countries progress towards the Goals. The Atlas also seeks to assist oil and gas companies and their stakeholders in developing a shared understanding of how the industry manages environmental and social challenges while maximizing economic benefits.
We therefore welcome suggestions for the Atlas during the feedback period from 13 February to 31 March 2017.
