Tullow Oil Environmental Standards (toes)

Tullow Oil Environmental Standards (toes)

We launched toes in 2009 to help us manage our environmental commitments and share best practice across the Group.

It acts as a framework through which we can manage and develop the five key elements of our environmental commitment: biodiversity, climate change, resource management, stakeholder engagement and monitoring and evaluation. toes also allows colleagues to see where work is being done and where we are making progress as well as helping us to set continuing goals for environmental management across the Group.

toes is currently being reviewed to reflect the evolving environmental challenges of our growing business. Our overall goal is to minimise our environmental impacts throughout the lifecycle of our operations.

In 2011 we are drafting environmental standards for:

  • Biodiversity (the effect of land use change and land function);
  • Resource management;
  • Climate change and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG); and
  • Socio-economic impacts.

Within Tullow’s intranet, toes will have key content containing the intent of the standard, its main features, applicability, delivery expectations, case studies, useful links and frequently asked questions.

There will be a separate toes tool box to ensure all our projects are managed in a sustainable way.
