Webinar Presents Roadmap for Oil and Gas to UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

Recently, IPIECA, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) held a webinar to present their shared understanding of the United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDGs) for the oil and gas industry. The webinar highlighted the organizations’ joint report “Mapping the Oil and Gas Industry to the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas.”

The SDGs are part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and were adopted by world leaders at a historic UN summit in September 2015. The 17 goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace, and justice, among other priorities.
