UN Sustainable Development Goals

The UN Sustainable Development Goals aim to overcome global challenges such as poverty, hunger, inequality and climate change

Our core business of delivering energy to the world contributes directly to goals 7, 8 and 13.

The way we operate supports implementation of many of the other goals, such as those on clean water (see Water), industry, infrastructure and innovation (see Providing renewable energy), responsible consumption and production (see Pursuing efficient operations and Helping our customers reduce emissions), and life below water and on land (see Biodiversity and sensitive areas). 

We have been working with our industry association, IPIECA, on the role of the goals and implications for our sector. We continue to monitor the goals as they move to international and national implementation.
