As the following examples demonstrate, Schlumberger participates in many types of community initiatives.
Carbon atoms in diamonds are arranged in cubic form, having stacking layers perpendicular to the diagonals of the cube.
They are found in soot, charcoal, carbon black and many other carbonaceous matters, and they have high electrical conductivity and chemical reactivity.
Carbon is also produced and used in other forms — such as activated carbon, carbon black and coke — that have many commercial applications: purification of water and air, air analysis, waste treatment, removal of sulfur dioxide from stack gases, and decolorization of sugar.
includes several forms of artificially prepared carbon, such as furnace black, channel black, lamp black and animal charcoal, and is commonly used in typewriter ribbons, printing inks, carbon paper, paint pigments, and as an absorber for solar energy and UV radiation.
Our approach to sustainability is rooted in a long-standing culture of global social and environmental stewardship.
For nearly 90 years, Schlumberger’s technological innovations have provided value for oil and gas operators by helping them increase production and recovery from nonrenewable resources—efficiently and with lower environmental impact.
We strive to be a unifying voice for social and environmental stewardship in the communities where we and our customers live and work.Read More Schlumberger’s technologies strive to lower environmental impact and provide value to customers and other stakeholders by reliably and efficiently optimizing production and recovery of nonrenewable resources.Schlumberger’s successes in governance, ethics, environmentally responsible technologies, and social and community engagement are evaluated against internationally recognized standards and guidelines.Schlumberger’s 2015 Global Stewardship Report was developed according to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines as a reference for our report.These guidelines help businesses, governments, and other organizations measure and report their sustainability performance in the areas of economic, environmental, and social impacts.Read the Highlights We are involved in a wide variety of programs worldwide, many of which are coordinated by employees who volunteer their time and expertise to assist others at the local level.
