The environment depends on companies like ours to contribute to its positive development. We work to minimise negative impact on the environment by continuously developing technology, practices and business opportunities compatible with sustainable development.
Our product innovation goes further and includes the full life cycle - not just technology but product design, manufacturing, operation and decommissioning. Our brochure “Ingenuity delivered” provides more information on our product innovation.
In addition to delivering greener solutions to the oil and gas industry, Aker Solutions is working on continually improving our own performance.
All operating units in Aker Solutions shall implement the health, safety and environment (HSE) operating system. This implies adopting the expectations set out in the HSE operating system as improvement targets, performing assessments against these expectations, and having in place a continual improvement process to meet these expectations. Our global HSE network currently employs more than 200 fulltime HSE professionals to ensure continuous improvement.
Each business unit reports electricity use by location, renewable and non-renewable fuels, waste disposal and recycling factors. The environmental performance key performance indicators (KPIs) also include intensity factors to be able to monitor energy consumption and emissions as a factor of one million worked hours.
In order to encourage environmental innovation, Aker Solutions has an internal award system. The Just Care™ award is an annual internal award for outstanding HSE performance, where environment is one of the four award categories.
