Worley Spotlights Sustainability as Central to Its Agenda
The company’s latest sustainability report highlights progress despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Engineering firm Worley has released its Sustainability Report 2020, which highlights strong progress on delivering sustained economic, social, and environmental progress for communities across the world by deploying the latest digital and sustainability innovations for its customers.
“Over the past year, the world has been responding to forces more powerful than any one geography, sector, or company, including the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, the energy transition, and digitalization of our industries,” said Chris Ashton, Worley’s chief executive officer. “Sustainable economic growth will be essential to deal with these increasing challenges as the world recovers from the pandemic. It will put people back to work, help communities rebuild, and support achievement of the Paris Agreement.
Worley has pursued several initiatives during the last year that support sustainability progress, including the launch of its new “Life” approach that aims to put the safety, health, and wellbeing of people, communities, and the environment first. It has piloted its Sustainable Solutions process to reduce carbon emissions on customer projects and its strategic ventures in onshore and offshore wind and distributed energy systems.
Worley has established a new emissions baseline that takes account of the merger of WorleyParsons and Jacobs Energy, Chemicals and Resources division in April 2019. Worley also recently announced its Climate Change Position Statement and is now developing a net-zero road map for its Scope 1 and 2 emissions, which will focus on reducing energy usage and emissions intensity through substitution with low-carbon energy options.
