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.
