Transocean to participate in Corporate Eco Forum

Posted on 31 July 2008

“Better yet, the Forum will provide further opportunity for Transocean to engage in discussion on environmental responsibility and to continue to build external relationships with our stakeholders and peers.”

Adds Ian Hudson, corporate environmental manager: “We look forward to hearing how some of the most recognized ‘green companies’ in the world achieve their success.”

The new Forum is launching a conference in San Francisco this September, bringing together leaders from some of the world’s largest companies to synthesize the most important actionable, best-practice insights on eco-strategy execution and green ROI (Return on Investment).

Transocean plans to play a role in the development of the Corporate Eco Forum. In addition to the Forum in September, Transocean will participate in a range of research and knowledge sharing exercises designed to better place the company’s activities in a more informed environmental context while building new relationships.

Transocean also is set to promote its message of environmental responsibility through the Sept/Oct issue of Drilling Contractor. The article will look at examples of projects in the industry and Transocean that show the ways we can enhance industry’s reputation, ensure good environmental stewardship and work together as an industry on challenges ahead.
