Today, OMV published its 13 Sustainability Report. It describes which aspects with regard to environmental, social and governance issues are most material to OMV as well as the achievements and progress made in the year 2017.

Within the framework of the new strategy the Executive Board reviewed the sustainability definition and defined five focus areas in 2017. Sustainability for OMV means creating long-term value for customers and shareholders by being innovative and an employer of choice. OMV conducts its business in a responsible way, respecting the environment and adding value to the societies in which it operates.

The five new focus areas are:

  • Health, Safety, Security and Environment
  • Carbon Efficiency
  • Innovation
  • Employees
  • Business Principles and Social Responsibility

Additionally, the process to define long-term targets for these focus areas has been started in 2017 as well.

Further highlights in 2017
With regard to safety, OMV achieved a decrease of 15% in the Lost-Time Injury Rate. OMV once again achieved the CDP Climate Change score “A–” (Leadership), placing it among the top 13 companies in the global energy sector. In 2017, more than half a million people across 17 countries benefited from 205 social initiatives in the areas of education, self-employment or basic infrastructure, united by the common goal of contributing to a better life.

Rainer Seele, OMV Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO: “ I am proud that we have a long tradition of responsible and sustainable behavior at OMV. Sustainability is an integral part of our Strategy 2025, which will lead us to profitable, international growth that is also realized responsibly”.

OMV is a signatory to the United Nations (UN) Global Compact and the Sustainability Report also serves as the Communication on Progress for the UN Global Compact.
