The World Petroleum Council undertakes initiatives to offset their carbon footprint at its events. These initiatives are achieved by focusing on concerns on the energy utilized, recycling and several other fundamental issues.
A key component of the Social Responsibility Programs (SRGV) at each World Petroleum Congress is the Social Responsibility ‘’Global Village’’. The SRGV showcases projects and initiatives that highlight contributions of the petroleum industry to human development at the local level.
During these sessions in the Global Village, companies are invited to illustrate the link between social responsibility and human development through their work on CSR related projects.
