Safety and environmental protection is the foundation to achieve sustainable development for CNOOC Limited. In order to “Achieve world-class safety and environmental protection”, we adhere to the core HSE values of “Safety First, Environment Paramount, People Oriented and Equipment Integrated” to improve our HSE management system constantly, promote safety culture and enhance emergency response capability. We have put significant effort into environmental protection and emission reduction, and incorporated the idea of safe, green and low-carbon development into every aspect of the Company’s operations.

CNOOC Limited attaches great importance to marine ecological environmental protection and implements laws such as Marine Environmental Protection Law of the People's Republic of China, Measures for Environmental Protection Management during Production, and Measures to Manage Accountability for Environmental Damages. The Company has created Green Oil Field Plan and established a long-term mechanism for marine ecological protection. We support the infrastructure and ecological civilization construction at marine conservation areas by participating in research on marine biodiversity protection, marine ecological restoration projects, and comprehensive restoration projects in coastal areas.

The Company incorporates compensation for loss of marine biological resources and ecological service functions into environmental protection investment in construction projects. In new projects, we will continue to carry out marine biological resource artificial propagation and release, conservation and management of marine biological resources, artificial fish reefs, and related research work.
