What we do

IBP works with members and experts to develop policies and guidance covering all sectors and requirements of the oil, gas and biofuels industry. Read below about our activities, advocacy, initiatives and priorities for each of our areas of focus.

Ethical conduct has always been the foundation of our organization. The continuous and voluntary collaboration of our Board and our Associates, collectively with their management teams and employees, is fundamental to the continued growth of our entity and a solid and sustainable industry in the country.

IBP is the driving force of the Oil, Gas and Biofuels sector in Brazil. As our organization and the oil and gas market evolve, it is important that we keep the highest standards of ethics and excellence in all our activities and in achieving our goals.

For us, compliance has become a key element in the development of the industry, and we are making efforts to become a forum for discussion and dissemination of the culture of integrity in Brazil. Whether through our educational projects, or through collective actions of our Commission, we have brought into IBP this theme that is relevant to us, and we want it to reach every level of the production chain.
