Ethics & Society

By acting fairly, honestly and with integrity at all times, we earn the trust of our clients, employees, business partners, suppliers and other stakeholders. Ultimately, that makes our business stronger. 

Protecting people

The health and safety of our people is always our first priority and we believe all our people are entitled to the same level of protection. We create strong, healthy, safe and secure working environments for our global workforce wherever they are and whatever they are doing. Protection forms the core of our culture and guides the way we work. Our aim is an incident-free workplace, every day, everywhere. We are all responsible for our own and each other’s safety. This is entrenched in daily life at Subsea 7 through the training and risk assessment processes we put in place to ensure a safe working environment. 


Diversity and inclusion

Our Equal Opportunities and Diversity in Employment Policy promotes fairness and helps us to eliminate discrimination in every aspect of our operations. Diversity and inclusion ensure a holistic perspective, and the contribution of different ideas engenders innovation and growth. We have 80 nationalities working throughout the Group, bringing together a multitude of valuable ideas, beliefs and skills.

Conduct and ethics


Our Environmental Management System is in full compliance with environmental management standard ISO 14001. We focus on working in accordance with all applicable international and local environmental legislation. We closely monitor data regarding energy efficiency, emissions and waste management to track our performance.

We actively participate in the annual Carbon Disclosure Project, ensuring we measure and manage our environmental impact. In 2018 we aim to emit no more than 25 litres of unplanned, uncontained, environmentally harmful fluid spills to the environment per 200,000 hours worked.

Our Clean Operations programme continues to drive down emissions and promote efficient energy management. The programme started in 2011 and aims to raise the awareness of energy efficiency issues and approaches and to save fuel without compromising the safe execution of our projects.
