At Maersk Drilling, we report on Maersk Drilling’s economic, social and environmental impact in order to document our commitment to sustainable business practices.
On 23 of March 2016, Maersk Drilling’s Sustainability Report 2015 was published. It is our seventh sustainability report.
The annual reporting cycle follows the fiscal year – 1 January to 31 December – and supplements Maersk Group’s financial report and sustainability report. Maersk Drilling’s last sustainability report was published on 23 March 2015.
Maersk Drilling produces reports that reflect the operational scopes. Sustainability data is collected and reported from all our operated assets. In addition, we collect and report on sustainability data regarding all the on-going operations and business activities that fall within Maersk Drilling’s area of responsibility.
Data collected for greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) is divided into scopes 1, 2, and 3, in accordance with the petroleum industry guidelines for reporting on GHG emissions. We collect and report safety performance data in full compliance with the requirements of the Incident Statistics Programme (ISP) established by the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC).
Data quality and transparency
EY assured the quantitative and qualitative content of Maersk Drilling’s Sustainability Reports in 2012, 2013, and 2014. This year, we chose to end our successful cooperation with EY. We have come a long way since we started reporting on sustainability in 2009. With our internal controls and audit teams, we guarantee the highest data quality and full transparency in our sustainability report.
Our report complies with the Maersk Group’s specifications for report quality, including compliance with the Accountability Principles Standard (AA1000 APS) reporting framework concerning inclusivity, materiality and responsiveness.
Maersk Drilling follows the Global Reporting Initiative G4 reporting principles, and applies the general- and specific standard disclosures if they are relevant and add value for our stakeholders, to our business, and to our reporting.
Maersk Drilling’s Sustainability Report 2015 covers the areas laid out in the ten United Nations Global Compact principles.
