In this video series, meet some of our employees involved in sustainability initiatives in their local communities.
They’re examples of how Schlumberger teams worldwide are making a local impact by contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In Egypt, our employees volunteer at a local school running coding and robotics workshops—education unlocks opportunity and helps to reduce inequalities. Our local school initiative helps to inspire students about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics and highlights the amazing possibilities of STEM vocations. Our team has also arranged to equip the school with refurbished computers and furniture to set up a computer lab. Discover this initiative in my video here.
In Guyana, using water sustainably and careful management of wastewater is a key priority for us. At our largest facility, we’ve installed a closed-loop water recycling system. This helps to conserve water while at the same time reduce disposal to sewers—it’s also has decreased our impact on the local community’s water system. Watch my video to learn more.
We’re running a waste conservation campaign that measures food waste from the cafeteria at our learning center in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Our students and instructors, who come from around the world, have been participating in this effort. Since 2018, we’ve reduced average food waste per meal by 51%—a remarkable achievement. Learn more about this campaign in my video.
Delivering on our sustainability ambitions represents an opportunity for Schlumberger in the coming decade to play a role in helping close UN SDGs in cooperation with societies and communities where we operate. Learn more about how the company is driving high performance, sustainably here.
