Mapping the oil and gas industry to the SDGs: An Atlas
Aug 14, 2017
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its 17 goals, represents the world’s plan of action for overcoming poverty while protecting the planet and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) emphasize that economic growth needs to be accompanied by social fairness and environmental sustainability.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, have been partnering to develop this Atlas. We believe our organizations represent distinct yet complementary perspectives on the public-private sector spectrum. By working together, we endeavoured to facilitate a shared understanding of how the oil and gas industry can most effectively support the achievement of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda. Our hope is that this work will enable key oil and gas industry actors and their partners to identify how the industry can support countries in achieving the 2030 Agenda.
