We know what’s right

A strong commitment to sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), as an integrated part of our strategy, investment decisions and activities, will make Sval an attractive and valuable partner of choice for our key stakeholders in the years to come. Our ambition is to make Sval a leading company on sustainability and ESG.

Our vision is for Sval to be a top quartile exploration and production company by 2030, measured in terms of carbon intensity from our energy production. As we continue to grow, we will be a proactive contributor towards reduction in carbon intensity from the relevant licences we are participating in.
We aim at being well below the Norwegian and the global average in 2030.

Social responsibility

We will provide good, healthy, and safe working conditions for our employees and contribute positively to the community around us


Transparent Governance

We hold ourselves accountable to our stakeholders’ expectations by being transparent about our performance and impact
