Climate & environment

Climate and environment

We are committed to minimizing the impact on the environment and climate. Reduced emissions and discharges to the environment, including minimized generation of waste and optimized chemical consumption are key elements to operations activities.

On our assets in the North Sea and the Barents Sea, the main objective is to demonstrate industry leadership in continuous improvement and implementation of mitigating solutions for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We are investing resources in our efforts to further reduce the company’s carbon footprint.

Introducing new and low carbon technologies is key in our operations and business activities. Our dedicated focus is illustrated in our portfolio for research and development (R&D). More information is available in the R&D and Sustainability sections.

Our environmental management system is aligned with the international standard (ISO 14001).
