Sustainability and ESG

We are committed to playing our part in delivering a sustainable energy sector. This extends well beyond the way we are helping clients reduce their emissions and progress their new energies’ ambitions.

On our sustainability subsection you will learn how are we integrating ESG into our business, from protecting the environment and addressing climate change, to putting an emphasis on health, safety, and wellbeing, of our people and everyone we work with.

"Our business model and our ESG agenda are completely aligned. We see the energy transition as a strategic opportunity, the creation of in-country value is central to our local delivery model, and our best-in-class delivery is characterised by uncompromising commitments to ethical behaviour, safety, employee wellbeing, diversity and inclusion."
Tareq Kawash Group Chief Executive

Our approach to sustainability and ESG

Our sustainability strategy is structured around Environment, Social, and Governance pillars, widely known as ESG. These are indivisible from what we do as a company, and we engage with representatives from various groups of stakeholders to understand what matters to them, and how we can align our ESG priorities to the material issues we identify.

Understanding what matters most to our stakeholders

We regularly engage with clients, suppliers, investors, NGOs, policymakers, employees, and our supply chain, to fully understand what matters most to them. As a result of these discussions, we identified material issues for our business and aligned our targets to them.

We aim to minimise our own environmental impact, while supporting our clients in achieving their lower carbon ambitions.
