Climate change: IOGP position paper

IOGP recognizes the risks of climate change due to rising greenhouse gas emissions. These result from the world’s fast growing requirements for energy driven by industrial and economic growth.

We support the international community’s commitment to address the global challenge of climate change. We also believe that the oil and gas industry is very much a part of the solution to this challenge and that it can be addressed while meeting society’s future energy needs.

The oil and gas industry produces abundant, affordable and reliable energy.  Every day, you rely on this energy for heat, light and mobility.  So do billions of other people around the world.

IOGP believes that the long term objective of climate change policy should be to reduce the risk of serious impacts on society and ecosystems, while recognizing the importance of reliable and affordable energy to society.
