The Host for the next World Petroleum Congress used the proceeds of the 19th WPC to form the long term legacy benefiting a wide range of foundations and charitable projects. The selected theme: 'A World in Transition: Delivering Energy for Sustainable Growth' provided the Spanish Committee with an excellent framework to plan the legacy for the Congress and the attached World Petroleum Exhibition.
Key features were the focus on youth and social responsibility, while the 2008 World Expo in neighbouring Zaragoza provided a great synergy with its focus on water and sustainable development, which are essential issues within the petroleum industry as well. The organisers also made the 2008 event the first ever carbon neutral World Petroleum Congress ensuring that the carbon footprint that each of the delegates left behind when attending the event was zero as a way of neutralising its effect for the coming generations.
