Working together

All the work we do around the world requires working collaboratively with contractors, suppliers, non-governmental organisations and other businesses, among many others. We work together to achieve goals in operational excellence, best practice on sustainability issues and to improve standards within the energy sector.

Collaboration will be critical to achieving a low-carbon society. Government, business and civil society need to work together to design and support practical solutions.

This section details our work with some of our partners.
