Ipieca has released a members' only awareness briefing, The role of scenario analysis in climate reporting. Recently, there has been an increasing focus on the use of scenario analysis as a tool to aid corporate disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities (for example, the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) or the proposed 2018 CDP questionnaire).
Ipieca, API and IOGP have released a new publication -Guidelines on implementing spill impact mitigation assessment (SIMA)- produced in support of the Ipieca-IOGP guidance on net environmental benefit analysis (NEBA). A key objective for any oil spill response is to minimize the impacts to ecological, socio-economic and cultural resources at risk through the development of a safe and effective response strategy.
Ipieca welcomes the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association to its global membership. Norwegian Oil and Gas is the representative body and employer's association for oil and supplier companies engaged in the field of exploration and production of oil and gas on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The association works to solve common challenges for their members and to strengthen the competitiveness of the Shelf.
The 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a common global framework for navigating the world's most urgent economic, social, and environmental challenges. While governments have the primary responsibility to prioritize, coordinate and implement efforts to meet the SDGs, there is wide recognition that the private sector and civil society will play critical roles in the implementation of national plans.
