IAPG signed an agreement with the APG

On 13 July 2020, the IAPG signed an agreement for cooperation with the APG - Associação Portuguesa de Geólogos.

The aim of this agreement is to develop a coordinated activity for promoting initiatives and events discussing the ethical, social and cultural implications of geosciences in Portugal.

APG agrees to support the "Cape Town Statement on Geoethics" (that contains the Geoethical Promise, an Hippocratic-like oath for geoscientists) and to be included among the list of supporting organizations of the statement.

The Portuguese Association of Geologists (APG: http://www.apgeologos.pt/) was founded in 1976 clearly assuming itself as a socio-professional association in the image of the pan-European associative movement of geologists that arose at that time and that in 1980 originated the European Federation of Geologists.
The APG is a nonprofit public interest socio-professional association that brings together geology professionals. It is a founding member of the European Federation of Geologists (EFG: https://eurogeologists.eu/) and a member of the Portuguese Federation of Scientific Associations and Societies (FEPASC). 
Within the scope of the European Federation of Geologists, APG, through the National Accreditation Commission and in close collaboration with the International Licensed Body of the EFG, participates in the attribution of the title of Eurogeologist (EurGeol: http://www.geoethics.org/eurgeol-title) recognized and accepted internationally as a standard of quality and ethics in the exercise of the profession of geologist. Additionally, Eurogeologists can be considered Competent Persons by the Pan-European Reserves and Resources Reporting Committee (PERC), as long as they have the necessary skills.

The IAPG has 7 Affiliations, 21 Agreements for Cooperation, 3 Partnerships:
