The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are part of the of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and were adopted by world leaders at a historic UN Summit in September 2015. The 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities.
Ipieca has partnered with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to develop a shared understanding of the implications of the UN SDGs for the oil and gas industry and how the industry can most effectively contribute.
