Since the inception of Polarcus ten years ago, we have endeavoured to make positive changes across the seismic industry from a corporate and social responsibility perspective. From day one, Polarcus’ Explore Green™ agenda has been a key differentiator for the Company. Importantly, our Core Values of Responsibility, Innovation and Excellence have been the guiding principles by which Polarcus has operated its business across the globe.
Despite the challenging market conditions and extreme pressure on the seismic industry in recent years, we have maintained focus on the Polarcus Vision to be a ‘pioneer in an industry where the frontiers of seismic exploration are responsibly expanded without harm to our world’.
In this report, you will learn about what we are doing to minimize the impact of our operations across the globe, where we see risks for our stakeholders and what we are doing to mitigate those risks.
We are taking an important step forward in our CSR approach by preparing our 2017 report in alignment with the Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”) Standards. Sustainability reporting based on the GRI Standards provides information about an organization’s contributions to sustainable development – something that we are very proud of here at Polarcus!
I trust you enjoy reading the Polarcus Sustainability Report 2017 and hope that it will inspire our peers to follow in our footsteps.
We continuously strive to improve the sustainability of our operations through appropriate application of our policies and procedures on which we report in this document.
