NOIA Environmental, Social, & Governance (ESG) Network Underscores Emission Reductions in the Offshore
Washington, D.C. – The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) today released the report, NOIA ESG Network 2023 Report: A Focus on Emission Reductions. The report highlights the work done by the NOIA Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Network and NOIA members to share and develop the best ESG practices across the offshore energy industry, including sixteen case studies in emissions reduction.
NOIA President Erik Milito said, “The American offshore energy industry has positioned itself as a foundation of an energy system that lifts society on a truly global scale. NOIA members are part of an incredible ecosystem that drives all forms of abundant, reliable, and affordable domestic energy supplies for Americans, while continuously driving down emissions."
“The record of success NOIA documents in the report reflects the spirit of relentless innovation shared by our members. NOIA members make the world better and we are grateful that they have embraced the NOIA ESG Network to help them learn, collaborate, align, and improve in their stewardship, governance, and performance.”
Paul Danos, NOIA Chairman and Owner & CEO of Danos, said, “Environmental, Social, and Governance performance is not just a catchphrase; it’s a core part of how the offshore energy industry does business. Our industry is made up of thousands of companies and hundreds of thousands of women and men who, along with producing energy safely and sustainably, support and promote the betterment of local communities. This attitude is how we lift our communities, and it is how we are solving pressing environmental and societal challenges at home and around the world.”
