& goals

We operate in some of the world’s most beautiful locations, including southern Florida, the Caribbean, and Latin America. However, they’re also some of the world’s most threatened environments from sea-level rise, coastal flooding, cyclones, extreme heat, hurricanes, flooding, and earthquakes.

As climate change progresses, it is disrupting operations, lives, and ecosystems in all corners of the globe, and we are taking steps to mitigate the impact for our team and for our planet.

We are aware that these climate risks have the potential to impede operations, damage facilities, reduce workforce productivity, and potentially cause injuries to our people and our neighbors. That’s why we can – and do – implement innovative solutions to help minimize risks.

Robust weather tracking systems and emergency event response plans allow us to notify our operations ahead of extreme weather events. In turn, this helps us better manage our fixed and mobile assets, coordinate with local response agencies and our customers, and incorporate climate risk considerations in our project-specific environmental and safety assessments and planning.

We also have access to floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology, so we can quickly mobilize offshore LNG liquefaction and delivery capabilities. This will allow us to effectively respond to interruptions in energy supply triggered by disrupting events such as climate change, so we can keep the power flowing.

How to get to Zero

In addition to preparing to react to environmental threats, we’re also working to develop and invest in solutions that actively reduce our environmental impact. In 2021, we renewed our commitment to reaching net zero carbon emissions, including via our hydrogen division, Zero, by building “Zero Parks” – green hydrogen production facilities near large industrial centers.

We also continue to invest in and commercialize breakthrough low-carbon technologies and creative ways to deliver and use hydrogen. In 2021, we formalized our process to evaluate all assets for opportunities to implement existing low-carbon technologies to reduce our carbon footprint even further.

Through our innovative solutions and formalized processes, we will keep striving to demonstrate that we can continue bringing cleaner energy sources to the coastal areas that need them most, while working to make the world a cleaner and greener place through low-carbon and hydrogen technologies.
