Doing right by the planet, people and principles of governance.


Our ESG approach

We have always aimed to manage our business as responsibly as possible, and we are pleased to take the next step to collate and communicate our progress according to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles.

Though some may wonder how a business that has primarily operated in the oil and gas space might take an ESG-led approach, we reject any notion of contradiction. The energy transition is well underway, but as long as there is an oil and gas and offshore energy sector, it must operate as efficiently and respectfully toward the environment as possible.

That’s what our products and services are all about. And today, we are finding exciting new opportunities for our products and services across the broader offshore energy spectrum, from carbon capture and storage (CCS), to innovations in offshore green hydrogen.

Operationally, we are proud to be carbon-neutral for all our sites globally and we are committed to cutting our business emissions to reach Net Zero by 2030, or sooner.

As for the ‘S’ and the ‘G’? We have always ensured that our local communities benefit from our presence and have done our best to put in place the processes to manage our company the right way.

“Using last year’s report as a benchmark, we can see areas of growth, and identify opportunities for improvement. We can and are building momentum, whilst tracking our transition.”

James Larnder, MD

“We’re committed to conducting our operations responsibly and have proactively developed our ESG strategies in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and industry best practices.”

Simon Hatson, QHSE and Sustainability Director

Our focus areas:

  • Planet

    Our ambition is to achieve carbon neutrality within our own business, and by doing so to support our clients with their own decarbonisation efforts through offering a carbon-neutral option within their supply chain.

  • People

    People are at the heart of everything we do, and we aim to be a business at the core of the communities we exist within. Our commitment is to do right by both groups.

  • Principles of governance

    The governance of our operations is fundamental to our ways of working. Through published and audited procedures and management systems, we seek to ensure that our operations and technical output are conducted transparently in accordance with industry best practices.
