These Guidelines for Good Business Practices in the LPG Industry have been developed by the WLPGA for two specific purposes: Provide global LPG industry participants with a tool for ensuring the marketplace, and more importantly the customer, is not compromised by those in the industry who carry out ‘bad practices’. Enlist the support of government in establishing and enforcing policies and regulations that creates a safe, equitable, and competitive environment for industry participants, and to ensure the benefits of LPG are not denied to those who rely on LPG for basic life needs.
Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is set to play an increasingly important role as a “bridging fuel” alongside natural gas in the long-term transition to a truly sustainable global energy system. There is no doubt that the way we produce and use energy will eventually need to change profoundly.
SWITCH for a better future… This case study looks at the project driven by SWITCH on how to break the barriers to clean cooking in Haiti.
LPG is truly an Exceptional Energy. One of the key benefits of LPG is that it can go virtually anywhere and in the most unexpected and unusual ways. WLPGA member and Industry Council member Elgas is Australia’s largest supplier of LPG and a long standing member of the WLPGA. Elgas goes to great lengths to provide good service to its customers but, in one very dramatic case, they literally and figuratively went above and beyond expectations.
WLPGA member GenteGas is a high-impact social enterprise dedicated to improving the quality of life of families in Guatemala. This case study looks at GenteGas’ project to deliver affordable gas stoves and household health
education to low-income families exposed to toxic levels of wood smoke.

WLPGA member and Industry Council member Petredec opened a new LP Gas terminal in Mauritius in March 2014. The LP Gas Mounded Storage Import/Re-export Terminal facility and is the largest on-land LP Gas storage facility in the region.
WLPGA Member and Industry Council Member Flogas embarked on a fascinating cooperation with the award
winning Knockdhu distillery in Scotland. The project aimed to help the distillery improve their production processes by using LPG to meet sustainability targets. This Exceptional Energy success story looks at the story behind the distillery, the challenges faced and how the Flogas solution was put in place.
Report developed for the World LP Gas Association by ENERGIA International Network on Gender and Sustainable Energy.
The Roadmap, which was created by a working group of WLPGA members, outlines a project plan for how Cooking For Life will achieve its objective of converting one billion people from using biomass and other traditional fuels to LP Gas by 2030. The Roadmap was managed by Nexight consultants and included feedback from a number of key figures from within and outside the LP Gas industry. The Roadmap outlines the guiding principles of the initiative and what steps need to be taken to reach to goal.
Energy is crucial to sustainable development in small island developing states (SIDS) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LP Gas) has a central role in achieving that goal.
Tofu and Tempeh Production in Indonesia - A WLPGA Case Study
Tofu and tempeh (a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia) are fundamental to the Indonesian diet where they are a staple source of affordable protein. Tofu and tempeh are traditionally produced using firewood to heat soybeans. A lack of government regulation has led to poor sanitation, safety and health conditions, and high environmental impacts.
Natural disasters are a tragic reality. Earthquakes, tsunami, hurricanes, floods strike frequently and often with very little warning causing disruption to power and energy networks. This can directly affect hundreds of thousands of people who are often forced to seek temporary accommodation. These survivors need fuel for warmth and for cooking. The unique benefits of LP Gas mean that it can be transported, stored and used virtually anywhere and this exceptional energy offers swift solutions in times of emergency. This case study looks at how some companies are preparing in advance.

A inside look at efficient LP Gas hybrid systems.
This 2010 WLPGA study informs energy stakeholders worldwide about the black carbon emissions and theri impact on global climate as well as providing information on the inherently clean burning, low black carbon profile of LP Gas.
This study seeks to educate the LP Gas industry on the opportunities to receive carbon funding through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) by helping move segments of the populations in the developing world from dirty, greenhouse gas intensive fuels to cleaner, low carbon LP Gas.

This study discusses co-benefits of a switch to LP Gas such as reduced pressure on natural forests and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
These Guidelines serve as a tool to help assess the market for rural energy and to inform planning and policy officials about the role that LP Gas can play in bringing modern energy to those without current access.
This Guide discusses the rationale for economic incentives, why autogas makes sense, gives examples of successful incentive programs in a variety of countries.
