To establish the Petrofac Group Climate Change Initiative, commits to tackling the effects of global warming through leveraging our influence in the many countries in which we operate, building and international network of Petrofac employees, partners, contractors and leaders who are dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy. Petrofac will also engage with regional communities and education establishments and provide promotional seminars, road shows and exhibitions to raise awareness of why and how climate change can be tackled. Petrofac has devised a stategy to achieve emissions reduction targets which includes:
· Direct Emission Reduction (of their facilities and vehicles)
· Indirect Emission Reductions (encouraging affiliated entities that support Petrofac operations to Eliminate/Reduce/Reuse/Recycle/Dispose)
· Engagement (work to align partners with Petrofac emission reduction goals)
Petrofac is an international provider of facility solutions to the oil and gas industry and in recent years has achieved rapid growth in its business. Building on its successful track record, spanning 20 years and several hundred projects, based on a partnership approach, it has demonstrated a total commitment to the health and safety of everyone involved and respect and responsibility for the communities in which it operates. Petrofac has duly executed its projects with respect to its potential to impact the environment by the adoption of management systems in line with the principles of ISO14001. The environmental requirements Petrofac has had to adopt in the past have generally been those specified by clients in their contracts awarded and as can be appreciated these differ considerably from client to client and country to country.
Petrofac has become increasingly concerned that in some of the countries it operates, despite the existence of environmental requirements, significant shortfalls exist. The Petrofac Climate Change Initiative is seen as a challenging journey given the environment in which it operates. Petrofac is rethinking how and what it does across its business. The opportunities are enormous not only to the company, but also to society.
