Low-carbon products and solutions take centre-stage in the October round-up as we lead up to COP28 at the end of November. In addition to member initiatives, we share insights from ADIPEC and progress from the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative. We also highlight a new partnership for enhanced health from Eni, a partnership to commercialise OMV’s plastics circularity solution, and insights from the Ipieca Biodiversity and ecosystem services peer-to-peer workshop.
The new awareness briefing builds a shared understanding of carbon-compensated products, their role in supporting net-zero ambitions and the energy transition, and explores good practice in using them.
The three-day workshop, run by Ipieca, facilitated by UNEP-WCMC, and hosted by PETRONAS in Kuala Lumpur was followed by a field trip to a peat reserve to see biodiversity management and restoration practices in real life.
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.
