Reduce environmental footprint without compromising performance

Energy industry oil and gas sector stakeholders, investors, and global and local communities demand to see more tangible, immediate carbon footprint reductions. Choosing solutions that reduce your footprint demonstrably while driving high performance is a daunting process. Decision makers must differentiate what’s meaningful from what’s seen as "greenwash."

Whether you’re just getting started or already decarbonizing, we can help.

Quantifiably proven impact-reducing technologies

We’ve qualified a portfolio of technologies that can measurably reduce the environmental impact of oil and gas operations. Using a scientific methodology developed by our engineers, the impacts of these technologies have proved to reduce footprint now. Our method categorizes the environmental attributes of these Transition Technologies and links them to universally recognized United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our scientific quantification methodology proves the impact of our technologies.
Our methodology defines environmental attributes that correlate with relevant UN SDGs.
Our qualified technologies are supported by clear impact calculations to better inform decisions.

Show tangible impact

Reducing environmental footprint is a complex effort that we’ve meticulously road mapped to decarbonize our own operations. Our qualified technologies can make it easier. By leveraging their measurable impacts, this added transparency strengthens your sustainability efforts against the ever-growing mandate to reduce emissions.

Reduce your footprint along eight dimensions

We partner with customers who seek ways to decarbonize operations, reduce physical environmental impact, cut waste, and use better water solutions. Our expanding capabilities focus on reductions that contribute to reversing climate change and consequently align with key energy industry drivers.


Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from operations Electrify infrastructure and enable access to renewable power sources Reduce hazmat and use cleaner chemicals  Minimize waste  
Reduce the amount of energy consumed during operations Enable surveillance, assessment, and control of emissions sources Promote good water stewardship Reduce the physical size of projects
