Golar Releases Inaugural Sustainability Report and Commits to Setting Longer-Term ESG Targets in 2021

First stage of ESG reporting will inform setting of targets in areas of Health, Safety, & Security; Environmental Impact; Energy Efficiency & Innovation; People & Communities; and Governance & Ethics.

In order to enhance Golar LNG’s sustainability disclosures and to permit the development of ESG targets, Golar today publishes its Sustainability Report on its website. After consulting with investors and internal focus groups to develop the right KPIs, Golar has identified five priority focus areas and reported key facts and figures about our 2019 ESG performance across each one:

For each of our five priority ESG focus areas, Golar is also undertaking an exercise to set appropriate long-term ESG reporting targets by 2021 in consultation with our shareholders, charterers, and other key stakeholders. Setting these comparable targets will further aid Golar in fulfilling our commitment to be at the forefront of delivering LNG as an alternative to more emission-intensive fossil fuels while meeting global energy demand.

Iain Ross, CEO, Golar LNG, commented: “Sustainability is at the core of Golar’s mission to champion LNG as a key transition fuel to a cleaner energy future. Introducing ESG disclosures and prioritising five ESG focus areas for future development reflects our commitment to meeting investors’ expectations for measurable performance data. 

We have always worked closely with our stakeholders to minimise our environmental impact, keep people safe, improve quality of life, and uphold the strictest ethical standards. Today’s announcement is the next step in providing transparency for the world to assess our performance

Looking ahead we will announce formal medium and long-term targets in 2021.”
