Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), the operator of the joint venture with the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), stated that it is committed to reducing its environmental footprint through fostering ecosystem restoration.

According to the company, its actions aim to achieve world-class environmental excellence by implementing its Environment Risk Management process to identify, assess, mitigate, and manage environmental risks, environmentally related community health risks, and environmentally related social risks.

As the globe marks globe Environment Day (WED) this year, it has expressed its commitment to worldwide action to address the impact of plastic pollution and create an eco-friendly environment. Every June 5, the world observes World Environment Day to celebrate and promote environmental awareness and sustainability worldwide.

Since 1974, each edition of the Earth Day has focused on raising awareness and mobilizing the public to take constructive action to safeguard wildlife and our planet. This year’s subject is ‘Solutions to Plastic Pollution,’ with the campaign hashtag #BeatPlasticPollution. The theme focuses on raising awareness about the negative impacts of plastic pollution on our ecology.

“CNL conducts its business in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner, in compliance with all applicable laws and regulatory requirements, stakeholder expectations, and best industry practices,” said Chevron in a statement.

Rick Kennedy, Chairman and Managing Director of CNL, stated that the company’s approach to sustainability is characterized by its commitment to conserving the environment, empowering its people, and always getting the correct results.

“Environmental protection is a critical operational excellence focus that is integrated into our project planning and asset life cycle.” We employ a strong waste management strategy that includes solid wastes like plastics of varying densities, as well as possibilities for reduction, reuse, and recycling.

“We continue to assess and implement single-use plastic water bottle reduction by providing water dispensers.” We also purchased waste management equipment to shred, crush, and compact waste for recycling and re-use by third-party service providers. These steps have kept our used plastics from polluting the environment.

CNL’s Operational Excellence Management System, according to Rick, provides industry-leading performance in process safety, personal safety and health, the environment, reliability, and efficiency.

“Our environmental focus in decision making lays the groundwork for sound environmental management.” “The company protects the environment throughout its entire lifecycle, beginning with responsible design, development, operations, and asset retirement,” he said.

“CNL understands the value of reducing its environmental footprint by promoting ecosystem restoration.” The company strives for world-class environmental excellence by implementing its Environment Risk Management process, which identifies, assesses, mitigates, and manages environmental risks, environmental-related community health risks, and environmental-related social risks.”

CNL’s general manager of policy, government, and public affairs, Esimaje Brikinn, stated that the corporation recognizes the importance of conserving and promoting the environment.

“We have a long history of working in collaboration with communities, industry groups, regulators, and conservation groups to identify and protect biodiversity in parts of the world where we operate,” he explained.
