TotalEnergies is a member of the IPIECA ("International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association”), an international association aimed at promoting environmental and social issues within the industry.
IPIECA was established following a request from the then newly established United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 1974, for the oil and gas industry to form channels of communication with UNEP.
The work of IPIECA is supported by a number of specialist working groups through which members actively participate. These groups draw on the skills and experience of IPIECA's international membership and operate with support from the IPIECA secretariat. IPIECA represents half the world’s oil and gas production.
IPIECA helps the oil and gas industry improve their environmental and societal performance by:
- developing, sharing and promoting sound practices and solutions;
- enhancing and communicating knowledge and understanding;
- engaging members and others in the industry;
- working in partnership with key stakeholders.
IPIECA provides a Sustainability reporting guidance for the oil and gas industry. Besides, for the calculation of Scope 3 GHG emissions, the Company follows the oil and gas industry reporting guidelines published by IPIECA which comply with the GHG Protocol methodologies, in particular with the “Estimating petroleum industry value chain (Scope 3) greenhouse gas emissions” guideline.
