CSR EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Striving for Sustainability

​​​​​​​

"On land and in the sea, our fore-fathers lived and survived in this environment. They were able to do so because they recognized the need to conserve it, to take from it only what they needed to live, and to preserve it for succeeding generations."

The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahayan

​​​​​​​We have placed sustainability at the top of our leadership agenda. Our Corporate Identity captures the centrality of sustainability for us. It directs our everyday work and frames our targets and action plans for the future.

To us sustainability intermingles with all our strategic objectives and brings both challenges and opportunities to the table. Challenges such as climate change and access to energy are now a reality and will grow in importance in the short term. Opportunities come from the increasing interest in gas as a cleaner and economically sensible source of energy.

​Sustainable business practices go hand in hand with efficient business practices. Operational and energy efficiency leads to cost savings and is therefore inseparable from good management practice. However, for us, sustainability goes beyond cost considerations. It is as much about how we minimize our environmental footprint and provide cleaner energy solutions as it is about ensuring a positive and inspiring work culture and supporting our communities. To us sustainability is part and parcel of how we engage with our stakeholders and, importantly, how we measure and improve our performance and hold ourselves accountable.
