ERM supports UAE’s largest oil company in producing its first sustainability performance report
15 March 2010
ERM is currently supporting Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), to produce its first Sustainability Report.
ADNOC is one of the world’s top 10 oil and gas companies. Abu Dhabi has oil reserves estimated at over 92 billion barrels, is considered to have the fourth largest national reserves in the world and oversees oil production of more than 2.5 million barrels a day.
ERM’s Middle East based team has been working to provide sustainability performance reporting training for ADNOC staff through a series of presentations and workshops. The ERM team has also assisted in reviewing and updating an ADNOC Code of Practice that sets the framework for sustainability reporting by the company, in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
ERM’s Project Manager Dr Ben Boardman said: “ADNOC is the largest company in the United Arab Emirates and to be working for them is a great opportunity. Undertaking sustainability reporting is relatively new to companies in the region and something that is being driven by the Environment, Health & Safety Division in the Supreme Petroleum Council (SPC). ADNOC has committed to this which will lead the way for other companies in the region to do the same."
