In recent decades, most regions have endured some type of extreme weather event as a result of climate change.

Coastal floodings, severe droughts, and devasting winter storms continue to take a toll on infrastructure and global economies. These tumultuous and unpredictable weather patterns combined with government mandates and public demand have become forcing functions for the energy sector to rethink sustainability and to implement sustainability solutions.

Government entities, nonprofit organizations, and companies in both oil and gas and energy are already making strides to address climate change with actionable steps to limit global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For example, the Paris Agreement—adopted by 196 parties at COP 21 in Paris in 2015—is a legally binding international treaty with the sole goal to combat climate change and achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century.

Although some climate change initiatives may seem like daunting endeavors that will take years to fulfill, there are steps that companies—particularly in the oil and gas sector—can take now to turn sustainability strategies into actions.

A new ebook available for download titled, “How sustainable solutions save the planet by infusing new power into the energy industry,” outlines key examples of sustainability solutions oil and gas companies can implement to help elevate their sustainability goals.

The ebook discusses how oil and gas companies can reduce waste and make operations more sustainable by introducing technologies such as analytics, robotics, and drone technologies to reduce bottlenecks, cut waste, and help to limit onsite accidents. Other technologies like artificial intelligence platforms can predict safety risk by analyzing a variety of data including photos, field activities, weather, and more.

To take sustainability initiatives further, the ebook breaks down how oil and gas companies can look to Oracle solutions under the Oracle Smart Construction Platform to transform sustainability practices.
