GHG emissions reduction and gender equity are some of the company’s highlights
ESG are three letters that are changing risk analysis and investment decisions around the world and Enauta has been doing its part, inside and outside the operational scope. Following well-defined pillars within its strategy, the company has acted firmly to generate a positive impact on the environment and society.
Enauta has a history of performance in ESG areas since the beginning of its trajectory. It restructured the company by creating a specific sustainability management, with the objective of giving greater relevance to the theme that was previously shared with the communication area.
Among the actions, we can highlight the significant reduction in the intensity of its direct emissions (scopes 1 and 2) in the Atlanta Field – 7% reduction in 2020 with respect to 2019. In 2020, the year in which Enauta received a B grade from the CDP – Carbon Disclosure Project, this intensity was 15.2 kg CO2e/boe. Another important result is the 26% reduction in CO2e emissions in 2Q21, compared to 2Q20, with the improvement of operational efficiency in the Atlanta Field and the optimization of scope 3 logistics).
In its operations, the company avoids diesel, consuming gas produced as the platform’s primary energy source. Important optimizations in logistics have also made a difference, with a reduction in the support fleet and greater efficiency in the use of helicopters, which will have a greater positive impact on the reduction of its associated emissions.
Enauta has always acted consistently in research and development to generate knowledge, safety, and environmental preservation. In 2020, it became the first Brazilian company to sign the Sustainable Ocean Principles, promoted by the United Nations, in favor of sustainable ocean management. And its Research and Development project in partnership with UERJ – Contribution of Mangrove Forests of the State of Rio de Janeiro to the Process of Global Warming Mitigation through Carbon Storage, was selected by the Brazilian Institute of Oil, Gas and Biofuels (IBP) to represent Brazilian industry initiatives at the Climate Conference (COP26 – Glasgow) in November this year.
For a decade, Enauta has published its Annual Sustainability Report according to the GRI – Global Reporting Initiative standards and is a signatory of the UN Global Compact. In early 2021, it published its Sustainable Development Policy, which formalizes, directs, and establishes criteria to ensure commitment to environmental protection and the country’s social and economic prosperity.
In the Governance area, the company has in its DNA the tradition of valuing women, who today occupy 40% of the leadership positions and have a Governance, Ethics, and Sustainability Committee that is fundamental for process control, decision making, and feedback on internal ESG guidelines.
Enauta is firmly committed to transparency, climate change, diversity, and socioeconomic inclusion, and strives in its planning and actions to achieve increasingly consistent results in these areas, now recognized as essential to human development.
