The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) has awarded Australian energy company, Woodside, with the Environment Excellence Award at Tuesday night’s APPEA 2016 Conference Dinner in Brisbane.
APPEA Board member and Buru Energy Executive Chairman, Eric Streitberg, said the judges found that Woodside has consistently shown excellence across all facets of environmental performance.
Streitberg said: “Woodside minimizes its footprint by integrating world-class environmental management into its exploration and its facilities.”
He added that Woodside emphasizes the use of sound science and that it uses key scientific partnerships to enhance local knowledge.
Woodside has several scientific collaborations that amongst others includes the Australian Institute of Marine Science which studies the causes and effects of coral bleaching offshore Western Australia. Other partnerships include the Western Australian Museum and the Western Australia Marine Science Institution.
The APPEA Environment Excellence Award recognizes organizational excellence and industry leadership in environmental management. Woodside has won the award two times in a row after winning it in 2015 as well.
