In recent years, Saipem has launched an “Environmental Awareness Campaign” whose main goal is to encourage responsible environmental behaviour worldwide by all personnel and all people working for Saipem.
Campaign Saipem’s Environmental Awareness Campaign has been rolled out on sites and projects worldwide. The campaign aims to deal with a number of the potential environmental impacts arising from Saipem’s operations through the distribution of informative material and guidelines.
The following key topics were selected for the campaign:
- Energy saving
- Oil spill prevention
- Waste segregation
- Water saving and reuse
- Ecological footprint minimization.
The campaign is still underway and is currently being rolled out at new Saipem sites and project.
Saipem Corporate’s environmental magazine eNEWS comes out quarterly and aims to improve knowledge management and experience sharing within the Company.
Essentially, this means capturing and sharing environmental best practices and ensuring that project initiatives and the knowledge and memories of personnel involved on projects is transformed into valuable information that can be shared and used to benefit other Saipem projects and sites.
Saipem and the World Environmental Day
WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY (WED) has been celebrated each year on 5 June, ever since the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) launched the event in 1972. Saipem is pleased to celebrate WED by motivating people everywhere to show their commitment to the environment through special initiatives and actions. Saipem started to celebrate WED officially some years ago and organizes a wide range of activities worldwide.
