ESG & Future Energies

Preparing for the
Future of Energy

Our ESG Framework is Based Around Four Pillars

Reducing our operational GHG emissions and deploying clean energy  and lower carbon fuels across the markets we serve.

 Managing and Reducing our operational GHG emissions

We place a strong emphasis on reducing our scope 1 and 2 emissions, and are implementing a comprehensive GHG reduction programmes.

Deploying clean energy  and lower carbon fuels

We  see strong potential for lower carbon and integrated fuel and solar power solutions for our commercial and public customers. This includes solar power;  LPG for clean cooking; natural gas for industry and mobility;  lower carbon bitumen, and fostering demand for new products such as sustainable aviation fuel and biofuel feedstocks such as used cooking oil.

Key Targets and Initiatives:

  • Install solar panels across 300 retail and terminal sites by the end of 2023
  • Aim to reduce operational (scope 1 and scope 2) emissions by:
    • -15% by the end of 2025
    • -35% by the end of 2032
    • Longer term ambition – 100% by 2050
  • Achieve 30% of our EBITDA in Africa from transition fuels and clean energy by the end of 2027.

Our goal is to enhance our positive impact on local ecosystems and natural assets.

We place a strong emphasis on managing and minimising impacts on our natural environment through our HSSE policies, management plans and mitigating actions.

We adhere to leading environmental and quality management systems across key sites, and have also rolled out our own Puma Energy Environmental Management. We actively monitor and mitigate against oil spills, and have started to baseline and monitor water, waste and non-GHG emissions.

 Key Targets and Initiatives:

  • Achieve zero significant spills (L4 and higher)
  • Reduce water use, waste and non-GHG emissions
  • Reinforce safeguards and environmental management systems across high-risk sites
