  • Highlights environmental performance data.
  • Identifies areas where changes have taken place compared with 2007.
  • Highlights the current environmental initiatives.
  • Presents the environmental strategy and objectives for 2009 to 2013.

The data in the report is extracted from the two organizations’ global environmental performance monitoring programme and includes:

  • Atmospheric emissions.
  • Planned and unplanned discharges.
  • Waste generation.
  • Resource consumption.

Activities within these areas are measured in order to improve performance and to document progress.

2009 IADC chairman and Maersk Drilling CEO Claus V Hemmingsen says in the report, “Environmentally sustainable performance is becoming more important to us than ever. Reducing our environmental footprint has become part of our overall strategy. … With regards to management and reporting, we are conducting a total revamp of our management system including environmental management to focus our efforts in the most environmentally beneficial areas.”
