IPIECA and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) are proud to introduce Accelerating action: an SDG Roadmap for the oil and gas industry and would like to invite you to a webinar to explore it in more detail.
 
The Roadmap aims to accelerate the realisation of the SDGs by aligning the oil and gas industry around them, identifying 93 actions across eight impact opportunities and three systemic themes which IPIECA and companies working within the sector can take to contribute to a low-emissions future while contributing to a healthier, more prosperous world in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In this joint webinar we will explore the impact opportunities across the climate, nature and people themes, identifying how IPIECA and its members can help to drive change and accelerate action in support of the SDGs. The industry has a key role to play in achieving the ambitions of the SDGs by providing affordable and reliable energy essential for economic growth, employment, education, eradication of poverty and global health, as well as continuing to scale-up its climate change action, to support a world aspiring to net-zero emissions.

Speakers:

  • Bahareh Seyedi, Senior Sustainable Development Officer, United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs
  • Filippo Veglio, Director, People & Society, WBCSD
  • Brian Sullivan, Executive Director, IPIECA
  • Company representatives from Repsol, ExxonMobil, Schlumberger and TOTAL

The Roadmap is a collaboration between IPIECA, the global association for advancing environmental and social performance across oil and gas, and WBCSD, a global, CEO-led organization of over 200 leading businesses working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.
