Ipieca, the global oil and gas association for advancing environmental and social performance, partnered with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development to develop a shared understanding of how the oil and natural gas industry impacts the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This partnership created a roadmap for how our sector can support these goals and contribute to a healthier and more prosperous world.

This guidance, along with the context outlined in the SDGs, helps direct and influence sustainability decision-making at Ovintiv.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The UN SDGs are a blueprint for global partnership. Although the SDGs include 17 goals ranging from ending poverty to preserving oceans, Ipieca identified 10 that are most impacted by the oil and natural gas industry.

“Energy is a key driver of sustainable development and is often described as the ‘golden thread’ that links most of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda pledge to ‘leave no one behind’.”
