heatwaveOil and gas industry representatives will gather in London in early October to learn about issues surrounding climate change.

IPIECA , the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, is hosting the workshop entitled, Addressing adaptation in the oil and gas industry.

The event will bring together scientists, the insurance community, adaptation consultancy experts and oil and gas companies to explore the issues and gain a better understanding of potential industry action. The workshop aims to:

  • Identify and evaluate climate risks for the oil and gas industry, as well as society and ecosystems
  • Assess the vulnerabilities and opportunities that climate change poses to the oil and gas industry
  • Identify adaptation strategies to mitigate and manage the associated climate risk
  • Discuss remaining gaps in the understanding of projected climate risks and vulnerabilities to both society and the oil and gas industry

The IPIECA says part of its role is to promote understanding of climate change, and engagement in developing solutions to mitigate risks to society and the oil and gas industry
