Care for the environment is part of the CGG way of conducting business. CGG’s environmental policy establishes a mandate to prevent or reduce the company’s footprint and to continually improve its environmental performance.
CGG’s Care+Protect program entails two overarching environmental objectives:
Sercel applies a systematic ecodesign approach to the development of geophysical equipment. The environmental objective of a product, its impact in the field, its composition and specifications are all defined at the product development charter stage, which in turn allows for high product recyclability. Sercel’s innovations have consistently brought environmental benefits down the exploration chain.
Our geoscience activities resemble a typical office environment, with our highest potential action in terms of footprint minimization focused on reduced electricity consumption at the data centers we operate. Innovative solutions such as evaporative cooling and oil cooling are therefore deployed in our major data centers, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.
The increasing industrialization of the oceans raises questions about the potential human impact on marine life. Sercel has developed QuietSea, an automated Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) system seamlessly integrated into the seismic spread. QuietSea delivers superior marine mammal detection and localization performance around the globe.
As a member of the IAGC, CGG also supports the Joint Industry Program which has invested more than 40 Million USD since 2006 in research to address scientific knowledge gaps relating to the impact of sound on marine life.
