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.

The May edition showcases members accelerating action on a range of sustainability topics, including energy efficiency, net-zero emissions, biodiversity and land stewardship, and sustainability reporting. We also cover Ipieca’s membership of the ILO Global Business Network on Forced Labour and contribution to the first UNFCCC Global Stocktake. On the partners side, we share a new report by the Council for Inclusive Capitalism and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development on just transition strategies, as well as a progress update from the Oil & Gas Climate Initiative’s ‘Aiming for Zero’ methane emissions initiative.
