Sustainability Plans

Repsol strives to build a better future through the development of smart energy solutions. Our commitment to being a responsible company is at the core of everything we do.

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.

  • 2021 Repsol Norge Sustainability Plan

    This is the fourth year that Repsol Norge has developed a local Sustainability plan and it includes 12 actions to be followed. At the end of the year, each of the initiatives are reviewed.
  • 2020 Repsol Norge Sustainability Plan

    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. The 2020 plan included 12 actions and by the end of the year, each of the initiatives were reviewed and in 2020 we reached a fulfillment of 92%. 

    Some of the highlights in 2020:

    • We have raised the competence, awareness and engagement of our employees within climate and environment with the aim to make us prepared for the low emission future. We have done this through formal training courses and dialogue sessions.
    • We have engaged our employees in the effort to improve and reduce our environmental footprint in our office. Through a digital workshop we have identified close to 150 proposals for measures to make our workplace greener.
    • We have run a pilot project to test a new global digital Repsol tool (READS) for identification of environmental impacts of our operations.
  • The 2019 plan included 15 actions. At the end of the year, each of the initiatives were reviewed and in 2019 we reached a fulfillment of 93%.

    Some of the highlights in 2019:

    • Reuse of offshore drill pipes of Gyda. We achieved huge environmental and economic benefits by re-using offshore drill pipes from the Gyda field instead of sending them for re-melting.
    • Fuel reduction incentives: For all new tenders Repsol Norge now evaluates compensation formats which provide the right incentive for the contractor to reduce fuel usage in operations.
    • Young in the “Big Picture” project: One of our young professionals has been a representative in the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association reputation project. Their objective has been talking to young people and create a good dialogue that can lead to good sustainable solutions for the future.
  • 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.
