Ipieca provides global leadership on the interaction between the industry, people and communities by acting as a unique forum to promote high standards and share good practice.

Covering social performance, respect for human rights, health and contributions to social and economic development, Ipieca helps the oil and gas industry to operate responsibly and proactively contribute to society where it can, whilst engaging positively with communities and stakeholders.

Ipieca members start from the principle that managing local impacts and maximizing the social and economic benefits of their presence are essential project elements. Pursuing these goals helps companies to manage their own risks as well as potential impacts on others.

Ipieca’s aspiration is to support the oil and gas industry’s participation in international collaboration to transition to a lower carbon world in a way that’s just and fair for workforces, communities and consumers.

Respecting human rights

The oil and gas industry operates in some of the most challenging locations in the world and can face complex human-rights related issues. Companies have the responsibility to respect human rights.

Working with local communities

Ipieca provides social practitioners with tools and guidance for engaging with communities in host countries and facilitates peer-learning between members on good practice and emerging issues.

Just transition

Ipieca supports the oil, gas and alternative energy industry’s participation in international collaboration to transition to a low-carbon world in a way that is just and fair for workforces, communities and consumers.

Responsible security

Companies can face challenges producing and transporting oil and gas supplies safely and reliably in the countries in which they operate. Addressing such security issues proactively by developing and implementing operations that integrate responsible security helps ensure the safety and sustainability of the operating environment.

Health and wellbeing

Many people in the oil and gas industry work in extreme climates and difficult environments where the health risks can range from disease to the presence of potentially hazardous chemicals.
