Every year, we renew our commitment to sustainability through specific actions that respond to our stakeholders' expectations. They are brought to life through our Global Sustainability Plan, as well as in the country and operating center-specific plans.
Repsol’s Sustainability Plans are based on the six pillars in Repsol's Sustainability Model: The environment, climate change, safe operation, people, ethics and transparency, and innovation and technology.
Repsol’s strategy in Norway is to steadily increase our value and resilience, lowering the carbon footprint and always staying safe. Our ambition is to become a zero-emission operator on the Norwegian Continental Shelf by 2030.
We developed our first Repsol Norge Sustainability Plan in 2018.
Also, the 2020 Norway Sustainability Plan is based on the six pillars in the Repsol’s Sustainability Model: environment, climate change, safe operations, people, ethics and transparency, and innovation and technology.

For Norway we developed our first Repsol Norge sustainability plan in 2018 and it included 18 actions to be followed. At the end of the year, each of the initiatives that are part of the Sustainability Plan is reviewed and we reached a fulfillment of 83%.
One of the achievements in the 2018 plan that we would like to mention is that Repsol Norge has become a partner in the planned low emission research center lead by SINTEF and NTNU. Technology development within this centre shall help the petroleum industry to reduce offshore CO2 emissions by 40% within 2030 and to move towards zero emission on the Norwegian shelf in 2050.
