Safety, health and environmental issues remain front and centre in the company’s agenda. To that end, Sakhalin Energy will pay special attention to the development of the company’s and contractors’ employees as part of the Goal Zero programme. As part of the HSE strategy, the company has adopted and included in the 2019–2023 plans the following main objectives:
