Minimizing Environmental Impact and Improving Environmental Programs

TGS is committed to protecting the environment in which we live and work and conducting our operations in an environmentally responsible manner.

We also strive to lead the industry in minimizing the impact of our operations on the environment. We are dedicated to the continuous improvement of our environmental programs and standards for all of our operations. 

We will work to achieve this commitment by:

  • Planning operations to minimize and/or reduce environmental impacts to acceptable levels
  • Monitoring our performance against approved environmental management plans
  • Carrying out regular environmental audits, inspections and site visits of TGS and contractor operations
  • Maintaining compliance with applicable laws, regulations and guidance
  • Monitoring the environmental performance of our contractors
  • Education of our employees and contractors in TGS environmental stewardship strategies
  • Communicating TGS environmental expectations to all employees and contractors
  • Seeking continuous improvement and sustainable solutions
  • Annually reviewing this policy and plans for ongoing suitability and effectiveness
  • Providing appropriate financial and physical resources to enable compliance

Our environmental effort will be based on the implementation of the following key strategies at all locations we operate in worldwide:

  • Conducting environmental risk assessments of our operations and assessing our impact on the environment
  • Minimization and reduction of waste generated by design and purchase
  • Adoption of reduce, re-use and recycle programs where efficiencies can be found
  • Where hazardous chemicals, materials or products are used, adopt substitution techniques aimed at reducing or eliminating the handling, use and storage of such items
  • Minimization of carbon emissions by survey design and minimization of technical and non-technical downtime
  • Guarding against accidental and operational pollution
  • Development of emergency response plans for environmental incidents
