Employees

We believe our employees are the cornerstone of our business. We are committed to performing safe operations, with the health and safety of our people as our utmost priority. Reach Subsea has implemented a Quality Management System, including a set of rules and procedures to secure the safety of the people who work for us.

We operate within industry HSEQ standards and are certified according to ISO 9001:2015*. The Work Environmental Manual describes the Work Environmental Management System within the framework of our Quality Management System. Everyone involved in our operations is responsible for carrying out their work in accordance with the Manual in a manner that will not harm health or safety. The CEO is responsible for ensuring implementation of the overall HSE policy.

Environment

The world is facing a global energy revolution. Achieving the ambitions in the Paris Agreement requires a 45 % reduction of greenhouse gas emissions within 2030. At the same time, the world population and demand for energy is growing each year. Reducing emissions and maintaining growing and reliable energy production levels is a global challenge and will require transition to renewable energy sources.

We already see signs of the green shift with increased demand for sustainable and environmental-friendly solutions in the market. In order to maintain our position as an attractive business partner, we need to meet stakeholder’s expectations when it comes to our environmental impacts.

The Board of Directors and Group Management frequently discuss climate-related issues, such as risks and opportunities that may arise from climate change and our strategic response to these. Risks and opportunities are identified by assessing changes in regulations, technological advances as well as trends in market and customer demands.

Reducing our emissions

Our goal is to have zero impact to the environment. As with all companies within the offshore industry, CO2 emissions from fuel oil consumption is our most significant environmental impact.

Responsible business

We believe that sustainability and long-term profitability go hand in hand. By continuing to focus on sustainable solutions we minimize risk, increase transparency and facilitate more efficient use of our resources – increasing our value and competitiveness.

In turn, profitability and financial strength helps to secure Reach Subsea as a reliable employer, providing workers with a secure and meaningful place to work.

We aim to be an attractive and professional subsea operator by maintaining high ethical standards, defined by our Code of Conduct. We promote transparency by following international legislations and requirements and contribute to anti-corruption and fraud-prevention by implementation of routines for selecting suppliers.

Key targets

Our Key Sustainability targets are defined and presented in the Sustainability Report. Further, sustainability reporting includes monthly update to the Management and Board and a status update in quarterly reports.

Developing our employees

The competence and capabilities within our workforce are key in ensuring our future sustainability. We work constantly to secure Reach Subsea as an attractive workplace to be able to attract and retain the right people.
