Annotation: This spreadsheet maps GRI's Oil and Gas Sector Supplement (OGSS) against the 2010 IPIECA, API and OGP Oil and gas industry guidance on voluntary sustainability reporting. With the launch of GRI’s Oil and Gas Sector Supplement (OGSS), GRI and IPIECA, API and OGP now provide reporting guidance targeted at companies and organizations operating in the oil and gas sector. The IPIECA, API and OGP Oil and gas industry guidance on voluntary sustainability reporting was launched in December 2010. While GRI and IPIECA, API and OGP (henceforth referred to as IPIECA) used different approaches to developing and structuring their guidance, the organizations have the same overall aim: to encourage consistent and high quality sustainability reporting as an enabler of stakeholder engagement, transparency and performance improvement. During creation of their guidance, both GRI and IPIECA used each other's work to align content wherever appropriate.This index aims to help companies using the guidance of GRI and IPIECA, or using one and starting to use the other, by ‘mapping’ where the guidance provided is aligned. Alignment here reflects similarities of ‘intent’ of each set of guidance, rather than the detailed definitions of qualitative or quantitative reporting guidance.
