Environmental management

Saipem's environmental management systems

Saipem is aware all its activities – from planning and engineering phases, to operational activities on site – have the potential to affect environment as well as local communities.
The broad environmental issues faced during Saipem operations are dealt with at both global and local levels, and include: air emissions, marine and fresh water discharges, incidents and oil spills, soil and groundwater contamination, habitat protection and biodiversity.
Saipem’s projects cover even the most remote and sensitive environments, therefore it is essential to operate in a way that protects the environment. The potentially negative impacts associated with the operational activities are to be avoided, minimised or mitigated with proper care and attention, starting from the design phase and through the entire project development up to the decommissioning phase, also in compliance with local and international regulations and Clients’ requirements.
Year after year, Saipem maintains and increases its commitment on preventing pollution and improving environmental performances.
Saipem establishes and maintains an Environmental Management System with the main purpose of:

  • minimising the environmental impacts potentially arisingfrom its activities;
  • complying with all applicable environmental requirements.

The approach is based on a series of actions, comprising the planning and implementing ones, focused on checking adequacy and effectiveness of activities as well as on carrying out possible corrective solutions, in order to achieve a continuous performance improvement.
A focus on specific proactive environmental initiatives and performance trends monitoring is continuously promoted.
In addition, Saipem Corporate encourages Operating Companies to develop, align themselves with or maintain environmental management systems in compliance with the Corporate requirements and ISO 14001 standard. Certification/registration by an accredited third party when systems are mature is highly recommended.
Saipem HSEi Management System is based on a wide range of resources, with identified responsibilities, going from the CEO, through the Top Senior Management (that supports the formal management of the HSE System), to several managerial resources (at Corporate, Company and Project level) that support the HSE System processes, to specialist resources (whose responsibility is to coordinate the implementation of the HSE System), and finally including all members of Project Management.
