Organizing a student engineering event in Norway

In Norway, Technip has been involved in the academic world, a simple way to detect future talents. As such, the Company organized a career event and became "Company of the day" at the largest and most renowned engineering university, NTNU. Throughout the day 500 students visited the three Technip stands manned by engineers and HR teams, eager to present their Company and the promising career opportunities. They also outlined the benefits linked to taking a job within the Company such as working environment, international mobility and HSE culture. This was also the chance to conduct interviews and assessment centers directly onsite, with several students having accepted a final offer to work at Technip.

Helping develop Emirati engineers

Present in the Middle East for 30 years, Technip has decided to pass on its expertise to young generations of Emirati engineers thanks to agreements with its clients. Every year, an average of 50 engineers are trained for several months in our multi-disciplinary offices, working on complex projects under the supervision and mentoring support of our skilled specialists.

Giving children and teenagers a flavor for engineering

In partnership with TechFest, a local charity, some Technip employees based in Aberdeen volunteered to take part in an activity to give children a flavor for engineering, at the Westhill secondary school. The challenge? Getting the pupils to build a four-meter tetrahedron structure out of wooden rods while teaching them engineering facts and making them want to pursue sciences as part of their higher education.

Kicking off 2013 with a focus on quality in North America

To emphasize its commitment to quality, Technip in North America started off 2013 with a Technip Business Excellence initiative. This quality-focused program is based on the Lean and Six Sigma principles and will be implemented across all business units in the Region to streamline processes, eliminate waste and reduce the cost of non-quality.

Innovation serving the environment

In 2012, we completed the development and fabrication of the Marine Well Containment System for international operators led by ExxonMobil. This emergency response device is available with 24 hours’ notice, and fully deployable within a matter of weeks, in the event of an underwater well incident in the Gulf of Mexico. In 2013 we were awarded by the Marine Well Containment Company a contract for the storage of part of this equipment, at our Mobile spoolbase.

Reducing natural compound consumption in Brazil

In 2013, Technip’s Health Safety and Environment team in Brazil launched a national campaign to reduce human impact on the environment, such as the consumption of CO2. This initiative aims at promoting the use of resources in accordance to actual needs to avoid waste. An internal campaign was launched to inform our employees about sustainable actions that can be implemented both at work and at home, to induce a change of behavior. By raising our workforce´s awareness about the impact caused by human action, we create an environmental responsibility collective culture.

“Save food, save the environment”: reducing food waste

Our Düsseldorf center opened a forum with useful information and facts related to global food production and waste cycle. Our team decided to analyze the management philosophy of their catering company. The result was very positive as the company provided evidence of processing the food waste to produce biogas and, thus, electricity. Following this event, we developed flyers with valuable and simple tips on how to reduce the food waste, both at work and home.

Limiting greenhouse gas emissions

One of our most significant achievements is the implementation of the Green Office program, a standard developed in 2010 describing how to conduct office operations in an environmentally-sound manner. Many green initiatives were organized around the Group: environmental walkthroughs and a waste management audit were held in Düsseldorf, Germany; a policy to reduce the volume of waste generated was implemented in Antwerp, The Netherlands; and a carbon footprint study was conducted in Paris, France. In 2013, all our head offices will be assessed against the Green Office standard.

Replanting mangroves in Thailand

Technip in Thailand organized a green day to raise awareness on the importance of preserving the environment. 100 employees and their families helped replant baby mangrove in the KlongKlone Village in Samut Songkram province, near Bangkok, and were not worried about getting knee-high in mud to do so.

Protecting the biodiversity

In Western Australia, the BHP Billiton Macedon Gas project is located in a semi-arid region of coastal plain and bushland. In 2012, we continued to implement various strategies to preserve the fragile local fauna, including native snakes and lizards. Excavations are inspected twice daily and fitted with shelters to prevent animals from being trapped inside. Employees were trained to handle reptiles, in case they need to be removed. This original initiative has helped rescue and relocate a large number of animals and do a census count of the local fauna.

Supporting healthier and more sustainable travel choices in Australia

The Australian TravelSmart program provides the community with travel information and resources including guides, events and initiatives. Our teams locally have applied its travelling recommendations to support healthier and more sustainable choices, when heading to work. Cycling, carpooling, using public transports are all part of the smart travelling means now in place to reduce travel costs as well as the impact on the environment.

Preserving the ecosystem

In New Caledonia, the Koniambo nickel smelter is a world wide scale mining and metals project, located in the foothills of the Koniambo Mountains. To build the site mangrove had to be removed: Technip has committed to replant the vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the mountains, thereby preserving their unique biodiversity.

Cycling for charity in Canada

“Bike the Rock” challenge completed! 16 Technip employees in Canada cycled 68 kilometers around the St John’s area, late September, to raise awareness and money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Initial aim: raising $2,000, total amount raised: $11,522! Our Technip team even won this year’s top fundraising team award.

Technip in Colombia receives Corporate Social Responsibility award from a major client

Technip won the Contractors Excellence Awards Contest for its CSR performance and permanent commitment to integrate social, economic and environmental best practices as a key element for the sustainable development of the Company. The price was granted by Ecopetrol, the major Colombian oil and gas company and first client of Technip in Colombia. Some of the CSR tangible initiatives that have been developed in Colombia, include the voluntary assistance to the homeless of Bogota and the promotion of socio-economic development for the benefit of the local communities of Barrancabermeja*.

Helping Brazilian youngsters getting into university

Technip’s Youth Program in Brazil prepares young members of local low-income communities for university admission tests. The program comprises orientation classes given by Technip volunteers on topics such as ethics, environment, safety and entrepreneurship. Portuguese and math reinforcement classes are also part of this course to ensure students have the required university entry level. The local Social Management team is also working on creating scholarships in partnership with private institutions, for the best-performing students.

Technip Citizen Movement: developing local communities in Rio de Janeiro

This initiative aims at stimulating the development and socializing with local disadvantaged communities close to Rio de Janeiro. On the agenda: legal consultation, health and oral hygiene orientations, and prevention tests. Dance and circus performances kept participants entertained while kids took part in drawing activities and storytelling. By guaranteeing community access to various public utilities, this initiative contributes to encouraging a fair return for all.

Committed to fight Leukodistrophy in France

In 2013, our Paris center took part in the "Put your sneakers at work" operation, organized by the European Association against leukodystrophies, ELA, sponsored by famous football champion Zinedine Zidane. As part of this important solidarity day, each employee received a podometer to count their steps. Thanks to all this walking, Technip donated €15,000 to the charity.

Technip Humania Challenge: collecting a record amount for local associations

Our Lyon center, France, organized in 2013 the 4th edition of the Technip Humania Challenge, a solidarity race which gathered over 200 employees in the Gerland park. The participants ran or walked to achieve the greatest possible number of kilometers in one hour. For each kilometer, €10 were raised for the benefit of three local associations, leading to an overall donation of €15,300 (1,500 kilometers).

Selecting committed suppliers and subcontractors

ETechnip in Italy is enforcing its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy by selecting qualified suppliers and subcontractors based on their compliance with the SA 8000 standard*. For each project requisition, our center in Rome has set a CSR assessment questionnaire for the companies awarded with a purchase order or contract. In case the evaluation reveals organizational aspects that might conceal potential issues, an audit might be conducted and followed up by a monitoring resolution plan for any deviations encountered.
*One of the world’s first auditable social certification standards for decent workplaces, across all industrial sectors; Technip in Italy has been certified since 2004.

Taking part in a run against breast cancer in Italy

Since 2003, a team of Technip employees has been participating in “Race for the Cure”, in Rome. About 50 people, including employees and their relatives, ran a 5-kilometer run while others took part in a 2-kilometer walk. The race aims at raising funds and increase public awareness about the importance of breast cancer prevention, while also providing strong support to women diagnosed with this type of cancer.

Partnering with Orphan Aid in Ghana

OrphanAid Africa is a charity dedicated to helping families and children at risk of abandonment and gives them secure futures within their communities. Technip has been working with Orphan Aid Africa in Ghana since 2011, and has been involved among other projects, with building a school for the charity.

Supporting the Ghanaian University's Business Incubator

Technip in Ghana established a strong and successful partnership with KNUST (Kumasi University) in 2011 to develop talents and promote entrepreneurship. In 2012, the Technip Relief and Development Fund equipped the Kumasi University with a computer room to support the Business Incubator. The room is accessible to the students who carry an entrepreneurial project.

Technip in Ghana signs a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nation Development Program

Technip signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Ghana to facilitate collaboration in common interest areas such as economic development, education and renewable energies. This agreement strengthens our ongoing partnership in the country: in 2011 our center supported UNDP in Ghana by free-leasing office containers for refugee’s camp, while in 2012 with the technical support of UNDP, Technip in Ghana equipped the library in Essikado (Western region) with solar panels to compensate part of the carbon footprint of its operations in the country.

Supporting flood victims in Northern India

Early 2013, the Northern state of India, Uttarakhand, suffered unprecedented rains and cloudbursts, resulting in floods that have rendered several thousands of people homeless, stranded or missing. Altogether, our three operating centers in the country collected about €17,000 and an equal amount was contributed by the Company, resulting in an overall donation of €34,000 towards the Uttarakhand relief and rescue mission. Employees in association with national non-governmental organization Goonj also made a commendable effort to donate essential items like food grains, clothes, blankets and medicines for the victims.

Supporting the blind in Vietnam

In Vietnam, Technip has been supporting a school, founded in 1986, dedicated to helping blind children aged 8 to 25 years old. The aim? Improving the quality of life of these children and teaching them valuable life skills. To that effect Technip has been providing them with computers, buying the school a new washing machine and helping maintain the first aid room and living areas. Health and Safety was also a major concern for the Group who donated two fire extinguishers to the establishment, provided training to the teachers.

Walking against cancer in Malaysia

500 Technip employees and their families walked around Lake Titiwangsa in Kuala Lumpur to collect funds for the National Malaysian Cancer Council, Makna. Total amount raised: almost €5,500! First aid workshops as well as health and safety activities were also organized to raise awareness among children and their parents!

Empowering the Seletar Indigenous community in Johor

Our Kuala Lumpur center has helped the Seletar Indigenous people build a self-sustaining community. With the development of an eco-tourism business and the eco-guide training of 15 people, Technip has given them the key to preserve their cultural heritage and to protect the ecosystem while becoming economically independent.

The Technip Fund and the Red Cross

Technip established its Relief and Development Fund in 2011 to reinforce its sustainable development tangible actions in the countries where it operates. The Fund supports non-profit social and general interest projects, primarily focused on health, education and underprivileged communities. In the event of natural disasters, it also contributes to emergency missions. Since 2012, employees are able to directly submit project proposals to the Fund via a company-dedicated intranet. In 2013, the Fund was mobilized to support the Filipino community affected by the aftermath of the typhoon Haiyan.
