We consider the protection of the environment and the conservation of biodiversity as a fundamental for sustainable development. Nature and ecosystems also have an intrinsic value and is essential to our society and therefore to Vår Energi.
We adhere to the Norwegian Act on the Management of Nature Diversity. As a result, we have implemented a Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Guideline and adopted a “No Go” Commitment for UNESCO Natural World Heritage Sites.
To secure protection of environmental resources in areas where we operate, we run environmental impact assessments, monitoring campaigns and R&D projects.
It is our objective to avoid waste generation wherever possible. We follow strategic waste principles based on the waste hierarchy to facilitate environmentally sound waste management.
Our produced water discharges is managed based on a holistic and risk-based approach, where the main objective is to minimize the environmental impact as much as possible.
Vår Energi has a goal of zero discharges of oil / chemicals to the sea. We continuously strive to achieve this goal through various initiatives and continuous monitoring of discharges.
