The first Global Stocktake (GST), will provide a comprehensive assessment of progress since adopting the Paris Agreement. This will help align efforts on climate action, including measures that need to be put in place to bridge the gaps in progress.
Ipieca and COP
The Ipieca Principles show what we stand for: supporting key UN Agreements and environmental and social good practice that aligns with them. In accordance with that Ipieca has attended every single COP since the inaugural event, held in Berlin in 1995. As a non-lobby organization, Ipieca’s role is to listen to negotiations and to provide technical inputs and industry feedback on the issues under discussion when required. During COP events we make use of our UNFCCC observer status to support the work of the UNFCCC Secretariat in implementation of the Convention and Paris Agreement:
- Observing negotiations and ensuring our industry is kept abreast of advancements in negotiations and decisions taken to promote the effective implementation of the Convention and Paris Agreement
- Hosting side events with Industry, NGOs and Academia to drive debate on relevant climate topics
- Undertaking bilateral engagements across the COP to further the aims of Ipieca to advance environmental and social performance across the energy transition
The Ipieca delegation usually consists of representatives from our own secretariat as well as a limited number of subject matter experts from our members. All Ipieca delegates are complying with the code of conduct for UNFCCC events (more details on the UNFCCC website) and support the Ipieca Principles, Ipieca’s condition of membership.
After COP, we work with our members and partners to raise awareness of the COP outcomes, share learnings and insights and produce practical guidance and tools to support the industry contribute to achieving the COP objectives
