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.
