Sustainability

Together, we will create a more sustainable, secure future by effectively managing our impacts to help you achieve your own sustainability ambitions. We contribute to the circular economy by maintaining our cargo carrying units to the highest standards to ensure they have at least 20 year useful lives. Our waste carrying containers transport over 200,000 tonnes per year of offshore waste materials back onshore for processing and our waste compactors ensure that waste can be transported with the minimum number of journeys.

In a highly regulated sector, we consistently conduct our operations responsibly, managing operational risks across our activities with essential priorities. For us, safety and people always come first.

We also recognise that climate change is a significant global environmental challenge. We take personal responsibility for reducing our own environmental impact and assisting our clients and the communities we engage with to reduce theirs.

Managing our business impact

Identifying opportunities for responsible mobility

We consistently assess opportunities to grow our electric vehicle fleet and we plan to install EV charging points for employee vehicles. We have acquired electricity powered forklifts to replace diesel engines and we are installing solar panels to generate renewable electricity for our offices and depots.

Additionally, we track carbon emissions from business travel, explore sustainable commuting options, and are discussing the use of biofuels and Sustainable Aviation Fuels for the UK offshore helicopter travel supply chain.

Saving energy to nurture our future

In 2022, we embarked on 'Project ECO' to signify our transition to cleaner energy sources and implemented our own carbon neutrality strategy aligned to ISO 14068. As part of this journey, we are enhancing the efficiency of our facilities and equipment.

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond energy to include reducing water usage, improving waste management, and a recycling system. To continually progress in our sustainability goals, we have also strengthened sustainability checks in our supply chain and launched a company-wide Life Cycle Assessment process of our major products.

Prioritising the well-being of our employees, always

We uphold the highest safety standards to protect our teams every day and are especially focused on the safety of those who work in the adverse offshore conditions. We foster a shared culture that values personal well-being and enables our people to achieve an optimal work-life balance.

At OEG, as the parent company, we aim to continue contributing to the energy transition through our business vision and the specific operations of our companies: OEG Renewables and OEG Offshore. Because protecting what is important for you today will enable us to create a stronger and cleaner tomorrow, together.

Fostering local communities for collective progress

We are dedicated to our local communities, emphasising the development of our local teams and reducing the reliance on expatriate staff. We have also built partnerships with local suppliers and organisations to build and foster robust local supply chains.

At the heart of our values lies a strong commitment to giving back to our communities, exemplified by our active involvement in charity fundraising events across our UK operations for organisations such as Bowel Cancer UK, Charlie House, Archway, Northsound One Cash for Kids Mission Christmas Appeal, and Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE).

Furthermore, we have created 'Recycle the Gulf,' an initiative designed to minimise and recycle residual offshore waste in the Gulf of Mexico. Managed in-house, this program involves collecting, sorting, and compacting recyclables on offshore installations. The proceeds from this effort are donated to the Arc of Acadiana, an organisation based in Louisiana dedicated to supporting individuals with developmental disabilities. We take immense pride in our collaboration with global companies that share our resolute commitment to corporate responsibility.
