Sustainability & Safety

Chairman: Michael Kahn (Jumbo)
Coordinator: Tjerk Suurenbroek (IRO)

The offshore energy industry has a clear responsibility towards CO2 reduction and safety. Therefore this committee focuses on themes such as corporate responsibility, circular economy and safety.

Building on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), a good and honest CR policy will attract new business partners and young capital and will help build our industry of tomorrow.

Involvement of young professionals is key in IRO’s mission to contribute to a sustainable industry. Young IRO was founded in October 2017 and aims at securing their sustainable future with the new generation in our offshore energy industry.

The Sustainability & safety committee is also involved in improving safety in the oil and gas industry. The exchange of information between training providers and discussions with NOGEPA, OPITO and GWO about amendments to the safety training portfolio are important focus areas of the Sustainability & safety Committee.
