Accelerating action: An SDG Roadmap for the oil and gas sector - Summary (English)

May 2021

IPIECA and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) have joined forces to develop a shared vision on how to maximise the sector’s contribution to the SDGs.

Building on the IPIECA-UNDP-IFC Mapping the oil and gas industry to the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas and the WBCSD SDG Sector Roadmap Guidelines, Accelerating action: An SDG Roadmap for the oil and gas sector (Roadmap) highlights 10 priority SDGs where the industry can have the biggest impact by driving innovations in its own operations and across the supply chain. These 10 SDGs underpin 8 impact opportunities in 3 interconnected themes: climate, nature and people.

This summary provides an overview of the Roadmap's purpose, the impact opportunities where the sector can maximise its contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the role for IPIECA, the sector, and supply chain actors and other stakeholders in implementing the Roadmap.

The summary is also available in the following languages:
