The Roadmap identifies how Ipieca, as an industry association, and oil and gas companies working within the sector, can work towards a low-emissions future while contributing to a healthier and more prosperous world aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Roadmap builds on the foundations of the 2017 Ipieca-UNDP-IFC Mapping the oil and gas industry to the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas (the Atlas), by presenting a series of impact opportunities which focus on where the sector can maximise its contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These impact opportunities involve scaling up good practices in environmental and social performance and building on innovative partnerships, while recognising the importance of the energy transition in the world’s aim to achieve net-zero emissions under the Paris Agreement.
The Roadmap includes actions for Ipieca as well as suggestions for action for companies within the sector to help guide, inform and influence decision-making within their businesses. It is hoped that the Roadmap will be used to inspire collaboration within the industry, convening the sector to help realise the ambitions of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. Ipieca also hopes that the Roadmap will foster collaboration throughout the supply chain and stimulate cross-sectoral cooperation to amplify SDG impact.
