Ipieca brings together members and stakeholders to lead in integrating sustainability by advancing climate action, environmental responsibility and social performance across oil, gas and renewables activities.
Ipieca was founded at the request of the United Nations Environment Programme in 1974. Through its non-lobby and collaborative approach Ipieca remains the industry's principal channel of engagement with the UN.
The September edition shares new initiatives, research and guidance for a broad spectrum of topics from across Ipieca’s four strategic pillars, including methane mitigation, net zero, alien invasive species, diversity and inclusion, community engagement, sustainability reporting and the Sustainable Development Goals.
This year's theme, 'MARPOL at 50 - our commitment goes on', reflects the organization's history of protecting the environment from the impact of shipping. Ipieca works to support MARPOL through a range of expertise around technologies, GHG emissions reduction, marine spill preparedness and response, health and safety.
Carbon capture projects take the centre stage in the August round-up, from nature-based solutions, to direct air capture and industrial CCS hubs. We also share insights from The World Bank on the role of green hydrogen in decarbonisation, and Ipieca’s insights from the 2023 UN High-level Political Forum.
