Calendar30 August 2023

The Ipieca sustainability article round-up showcases recent sustainability-related achievements, projects and news from Ipieca members, demonstrating their support for the Ipieca Principles around advancing environmental and social performance across the energy transition. We also highlight initiatives from our partner organizations and share insights from key United Nations meetings.

Carbon capture projects take the centre stage in the August round-up, from nature-based solutions, to direct air capture and industrial CCS hubs. Other climate-oriented actions this month include ADNOC’s enhanced net-zero ambition and Equinor’s focus on energy efficiency. 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.
