Sustainability

Our responsibility, as a world-leader in our industry, is to conduct our business sustainably and with the highest standards of business ethics and integrity.


In our efforts to build a sustainable Seadrill, we are focused on where we can make the biggest difference.

We are minimising the impact our activities have on the environment by developing advanced technologies to make our business ever safer and more efficient. Seadrill has reported into the Carbon Disclosure Project since 2012 and we are proud to be an industry-leader in terms of how we manage our carbon emissions and take coordinated action on climate issues.

At Seadrill, nothing is more important to us than the health, safety and wellbeing of our workforce and the communities in which we operate. Diversity and inclusion are more than words for us. Everyone is welcome—as an inclusive workplace, our people are comfortable bringing their authentic whole selves to work.

We continue to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our people. It fuels our innovation and connects us closer to our customers and the communities we operate in.

Beyond complying with laws and regulations, we enforce a strong Code of Conduct and implement best practices to govern our operations. We also continuously refine our ethics and compliance policies, processes and training.

We believe that our commitment to sustainability will drive stakeholder value, we are dedicated to developing a business that is agile, resilient and sustainable in the long-term.

An industry-leader in how we manage our carbon emissions and take action on climate issues

Monitoring, reporting and reducing our emissions is important to us, so we have reported our carbon emissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) since 2012. We create minimum environmental standards for current and future suppliers and we conduct environmental impact assessments to identify potential environmental risks from our activities.

We report our carbon emissions not only to gain competitive advantage by getting ahead of regulatory and policy changes, but also to identify and tackle growing risks and find new opportunities for action being demanded by our investors and customers across the world.

In 2019, Seadrill improved its CDP rating to a ‘B’, meaning that for the second year running, we have been assessed by the CPD as “managing” our carbon emissions, and taking coordinated action on climate issues.

We have made substantial progress since we joined the CDP in 2012, and we are proud of the progress that we have made. Today, we report our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions using our company reporting systems and service provider data.

Despite our recent progress in this area, we recognise that there is more that we can do. In future reports, we want to provide more detailed data around land transportation emissions, for example. And we will be able to provide detailed reporting on the impact of our hybrid battery system on the West Mira, on CO2 reduction on that rig.
