It is incredible what many of our G&G companies are doing with that emphasis on environmental responsibility in mind. One great example is IAGC Governing Member, Polarcus, which leads the industry in environmentally friendly seismic vessels.
Our vision at Polarcus is, “to be a pioneer in an industry where the frontiers of seismic exploration are responsibly expanded without harm to our world”. That vision is underpinned by our values of Responsibility, Innovation and Excellence, instilled throughout the business lifecycle at Polarcus. Polarcus' Explore Green™ provides the framework for responsible exploration on our journey to turn vision into reality. Explore Green™ is central to our culture of Being Polarcus.
The public debate on environmental matters is becoming increasingly vocal across the globe, with a corresponding demand for greater transparency from companies of all types. In our own industry we are witnessing an expansion into new frontiers and environmentally sensitive sea areas ("ESSA's") as existing reserves diminish and the important search for future global energy continues. This is already driving calls for higher levels of environmental compliance from all participating stakeholders in the value chain, including seismic companies.
