Ipieca and the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
Over the past two decades, Ipieca has actively participated in UN climate negotiations - from Rio through to Paris. Ipieca supports the Paris Agreement which was reached at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP-21) and committed all countries to undertake action on climate change and report on their progress for the first time.
Ipieca attends the annual Conferences of the Parties (COPs) of the UNFCCC as an official observer and provides members with summaries of the meetings. The association also supports debate on relevant topics by hosting events alongside the conferences. Ipieca does not lobby on behalf of the industry, but aims to increase understanding and provide timely information to members and key stakeholders.
Ipieca and the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
Ipieca is an observer organization and provides technical input when requested on the reports produced by the IPCC, such as the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and the Special Report on Carbon Capture and Storage. The secretariat and member company representatives also attend IPCC meetings as observers.
Ipieca held dedicated sessions for its members where IPCC lead authors presented the Working Groups I, II and III reports of the Sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change (AR6).
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.
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.
