- Managing biodiversity and ecosystem services across the energy transition: mainstreaming the mitigation hierarchy
This document outlines the key messages on BES good practices for the industry, and explores how industry and governments can support and work with each other to mainstream biodiversity across the energy transition.
This joint Ipieca - UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) report provides a summary of key drivers, challenges and opportunities for biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) management in the oil and gas industry.Managing Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services (BES) issues along the asset lifecycle in any environment10 Tips for Success in the Oil and Gas Industry
Ipieca and OGP have relaunched Managing Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services (BES) issues along the asset lifecycle in any environment: 10 tips forsuccess in the oil and gas industry. Originally published in 2010, the tips provide high level guidance on managing BES in the oil and gas industry. Each tip is supported by resources, many of which are Ipieca/OGP
This document outlines the guidance for the management of biodiversity and ecosystem services impacts, dependencies, risks and opportunities in the oil and gas sector.
The Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI) guide provides practical guidance, innovative approaches and examples to support operationalizing the mitigation hierarchy effectively.
The Cross Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI) Timeline Tool has been designed to assist project planning in the extractives industries to better align project development, biodiversity impact management, and financial timelines and milestones.
This product has been developed in partnership with UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC) and provides short definitions of over 200 commonly-used biodiversity terms and acronyms. The glossary was developed to support greater consistency in the use of terms and definitions related to biodiversity. The definitions have been
Ipieca is partnering with ICMM, the international Council on Mining & Metals and The Equator Principle Association in a Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative (CSBI). This forum is enabling cross-industry learning on the use of the biodiversity mitigation hierarchy, and the application of biodiversity offsets.
This product highlights the interface between the management of biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) and water issues throughout upstream onshore oil and gas operations, and outlines the key management steps for identifying and assessing both dependencies and potential impacts of operations on BES, and water risksProtecting marine turtles, cetaceans, and West African manatees as part of a Biodiversity Action Plan

This document introduces considerations and recommendations for oil and gas development in coastal environments. It highlights key issues for decision-makers and their advisors, project managers and HSE professionals in planning, designing, impact-assessing and managing oil and gas activities in these areas.
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.
The oil and gas industry both depends and impacts upon biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES). These checklists cover the five stages of the oil and gas life cycle for six generic habitat types, onshore and offshore.
The oil and gas industry both depends and impacts upon biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES). The aim of this guide is threefold. Firstly, it explains the relationship between biodiversity, ecosystem services and the oil and gas industry.
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.
