The president of the IBP, Roberto Ardenghy, says that the oil industry “has a mission to guarantee the world’s energy supply and finance the journey towards a low carbon economy. In the current climate emergency scenario, the sector joins more efforts to provide the investments and technologies necessary for the energy transition.

According to data from the IBP, the segment accounts for about 15% of Brazil’s industrial Gross Domestic Product (GDP), considered the 9th largest oil producer in the world. For the exploration and production activity, the IBP estimates investments of US$ 183 billion and tax collection of US$ 622 billion from 2022 to 2031, with an average generation of 445 thousand jobs per year in the period.
