Membership Tier: Associate
The World LPG Association (WLPGA) is the global voice for the liquid petroleum gas (LPG) industry. With over 225 members operating in more than 125 countries, WLPGA represents the entire LPG value chain from the upstream producers through to retail under one umbrella. WLPGA unites the broad interests of the worldwide LPG industry into one strong independent organization, which is nonprofit with all net revenues being invested back into the industry. The primary goal of the Association is to add value to the sector by driving premium demand for LPG, while also promoting compliance with good business and safety practices. WLPGA also develops long term partnerships with international organizations and implements projects on local and global scales. The Association was established in 1987 and granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council in 1989.
WLPGA recognizes that there are more people in the world today who are displaced due to civil unrest or natural disasters than at any other time since the end of World War II. And that all of these people need access to energy for cooking and heating. Give its portability, storability and clean burning characteristics, LPG is an ideal solution for providing clean energy to vulnerable populations in natural disaster relief and humanitarian calamities. WLPGA’s global leadership, which is comprised of industry leaders from around the world, has strongly endorsed working with the SAFE Humanitarian Working Group to ensure that the industry’s expertise and experience is accessed to bring LPG safely and sustainably to afflicted populations.
