A fact sheet from a series developed by Ipieca and OGP to demonstrate the oil and gas industry's present and future contribution to sustainable development. Prepared in advance of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The issues that dominate the sustainable development agenda - climate change, biodiversity impacts and access to energy - are too big for individual companies to tackle alone.
This document delivers practical information to on-the-ground staff at onshore and offshore projects and operations, helping them to identify key issues and solutions and to embed active consideration of alien invasive species (AIS) from the earliest stages of the project.
Promotion and certification of sustainable biofuels is complex and requires a well coordinated, multi-faceted and credible approach, and includes compliance with government mandates, international standards and certification programmes, which will be instrumental in promoting the responsible production of sustainable biofuels. This guide provides an introduction to biofuels Chain of Custody (CoC) systems as well as providing information on the different types of CoC systems in use.
This document discusses the various aspects of emissions from shipping activities, such as current and proposed legislation, types and sources of emissions, as well as abatement strategies and their consequences, and stakeholders and their respective views.
Sulphur is naturally present in crude oil, and must be removed to create lower sulphur fuels. The removal processes present large technological and resource challenges.
This publication communicates how the oil and gas industry is using partnerships to respond to challenges of meeting global energy demand and to contribute to sustainable development. The publication explores the partnering process through challenges and lessons learned identified by Ipieca members and their partners in the forty case studies featured.
