RASGAS BELIEVES THAT SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES AND BUSINESS SUCCESS ARE INSEPARABLE, WITH STRONG COMMITMENT TO ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY IN ITS BUSINESS PRACTICES.
By applying this sustainability framework to its strategic planning, business and operational activities, RasGas seeks to position itself as a transformative organisation and a driver of change in Qatar.
Our approach to sustainability is linked to the four pillars that underpin the Qatar National Vision 2030. Key to our approach is a commitment to:
RasGas recently issued its third annual sustainability report, building on our previous two sustainability reports, issued in 2009 and 2010
- Improving performance – becoming a more profitable and competitive organisation by increasing the social and economic benefits of our activities and reducing their environmental impact
- Strengthening relationships – working with shareholders and other stakeholders to address mutual needs and, by sound corporate advocacy with regulators, ensuring that regulations supporting sustainable development are practical and capable of implementation
- Integrity – maintaining the highest standards in all our operations and in the conduct of our business
- Integrating sustainable practices –by accounting for performance using quantitative measures in an informed and transparent manner, we seek to demonstrate success in implementing environmental, social and economic programmes that also meet socio-economic, eco-efficiency and socio-environmental goals
Our 2011 Sustainability Report provides an account of actions and performance data relating to a range of business, economic, environmental and social issues which make up our sustainability performance. It has been prepared in accordance with guidelines on sustainability reporting from Qatar Petroleum, which adopts guidance specific to the oil and gas industry prepared by the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association (IPIECA), and cross-references the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
