Ipieca convenes its members with key stakeholders in UN, NGO, civil society and academic organizations to share knowledge and develop good practice to mainstream biodiversity across the energy transition and achieve nature positive goals.
This guidance provides six natural climate solutions (NCS) management practices to support energy companies to conserve, enhance and restore the high carbon stock ecosystems in which they operate in order to deliver the climate change mitigation outcomes that benefit people and nature.
This guidance helps oil, gas and alternative energy health safety environment/sustainable development professionals - those involved in environmental management for project planning - to develop biodiversity action plans (BAPs) for their activities and projects. BAPs are a systematic approach to biodiversity management, conservation and enhancement that can be integrated with existing company processes throughout a project life cycle.
Managing biodiversity and ecosystem services in oil and gas development: Mainstreaming the mitigation hierarchy
This document supports companies to mainstream the mitigation hierarchy (avoid, minimise, restore, offset) across projects and integrate it with other biodiversity and ecosystem services management practices.
The document sets out a framework to inform biodiversity and ecosystem services strategy development and decision making at the corporate level and at the key stages of an asset life cycle for any type of operation or environmental context.
This report explores and identifies key drivers, challenges and opportunities for biodiversity and ecosystem services management in the oil and gas industry.
The Roadmap provides over 90 short, medium and long-term actions across the systemic areas of climate, nature and people which Ipieca and oil and gas companies can take to accelerate the realisation of the SDGs. The nature impact opportunities include actions to support a circular economy and help conserve, restore and protect biodiversity and ecosystem services.
This document provides high level guidance on managing BES in the oil and gas industry. The tips cover full asset life cycle and include the integration of ecosystem services management. Each tip is supported by relevant resources to support implementation.
This guide provides practical guidance, innovative approaches and examples to support operationalizing the mitigation hierarchy effectively. It is aimed at environmental professionals working in, or with, extractive industries and financial institutions.
The Cross-Sector Biodiversity Initiative is a partnership between Ipieca, the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) and the Equator Principles Association, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to develop and share good practices related to biodiversity and ecosystem services in the extractive industries.
