about WLPGA

The World LPG

The WLPGA promotes the use of LPG to foster a safer, cleaner, healthier and more prosperous world. WLPGA is the authoritative voice of the global LPG industry and represents the full LPG value chain. The WLPGA brings together over 300 private and public companies operating in more than 125 countries involved in one, several or all activities of the industry; develops long-term partnerships with international organisations; 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.

The WLPGA works to a Three Year Strategic Review which outlines WLPGA activities over a three year period and ensures maximum value for the WLPGA membership. The current Strategic Review covers 2020-2022 under the theme ‘Solutions for a Responsible Energy Future’.

Our Mission

The WLPGA mission statement forms the three principal goals of the WLPGA in this period, namely: Advocacy (ADV); Business Improvement (BIM): and Innovation & Growth (IGO).


To advocate LPG as part of the solution to future energy challenges


To support efficient and responsible business


To encourage innovation and support business growth



WLPGA is the only global body representing the LPG industry worldwide. We thank all our members for their continued support and team spirit that we all work together to foster.

Don’t just take our word for it though, hear from some of our members around the world …


Since 1989, the WLPGA has had official Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC).

It has also developed long standing partnerships with other international bodies such as various departments of the UN, the World Health Organization (WHO), Regional Development Banks and a number of well-respected international NGOs such as the Partnership on Clean Indoor Air (PCIA) and E+Co. The geographical spread and diversity of the WLPGA’s membership makes the association a representative, trusted and logical partner in international discussions.
