UN Sustainable Development Goals

Stakeholders are increasingly looking to businesses to help address global development challenges. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a global framework to help countries, businesses and other stakeholders understand and address society’s most important challenges
We want to contribute to sustainable development and are working to do more to support the delivery of the SDGs. Our business activity touches directly or indirectly on many of the goals, but we’ve focused our effort on specific goals that most closely align with our current business strategy and purpose. These include affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, and climate action.

How we contribute to goals 7, 8 and 13

Through our business activities – delivering energy products and services to the world – we contribute directly to goals 7, 8 and 13.

How we support the goals


The SDGs also include areas where we can have a positive impact or where we need to mitigate and manage any potential negative impacts. The way we work also supports the implementation of goals in countries where we have a presence. This includes goals 3, 6, 9, 12, 14, 15 and 17.


We contribute to these through our safety, environment, human rights, community, diversity and inclusion and wider business activity (tax, anti-bribery and corruption).
