Based in Aberdeen, TechnipFMC provide a range of technical solutions relating to subsea, onshore, offshore, and surface technologies.
The environmental impacts of transport are covered in TechnipFMC’s ISO14001 environmental management system and in their overarching sustainability policy. To reduce these environmental impacts, TechnipFMC has implemented a number of sustainable transport initiatives. These include the greater use of conference calls, reducing the need for non-essential travel resulting in a 7% saving in associated emissions, and the operation of a private bus service, removing 50 car journeys to and from the office each day equivalent to an annual saving of 74 tonnes of CO2.
Electric charging points have been installed and the business plan is to replace pool cars with electric vehicles at the end of the current lease. A Cycle to Work scheme has also been set up and walking meetings are encouraged, which if taken offsite are combined with litter picks to help reduce pollution.
TechnipFMC has a green team which actively provides personnel with the knowledge and tools to reduce their impact upon the environment. One aspect includes travel and emissions: TechnipFMC runs events throughout the year to provide information to personnel. The Healthy Working Lives Gold Award, Steps for All and gym facilities show a strong commitment to support staff health.
The Moving Scotland Award recognises businesses whose environmental impact have reduced significantly as a result of the introduction of active travel and sustainable transport activities. The Judges were impressed by the range of actions being taken by TechnipFMC to reduce the impacts of travel and felt they were a worthy winner of the Moving Scotland Award. The judges were also pleased to see investigations on the decarbonisation of their fleet of ships through the International Marine Contractors Association. The reduction to low sulphur fuels has been implemented before legally required.
Scott Williamson, TechnipFMC HSE Director, UK and Mediterranean, said: “We are delighted to win the Moving Scotland category at the 2019 VIBES awards which recognises companies who continuously improve their contribution to Scotland’s sustainable development. TechnipFMC is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and sustainability is one of our foundational beliefs - we are extremely proud to see our efforts recognised in this way.”
