Our business enables the supply of sustainable, affordable and safe energy for all. We constantly look for ways to make a better world, working and innovating to reduce our environmental impact and that of our customers. We work hard to protect our employees in every facet of their work; to provide a diverse, inclusive, and supportive workplace; and to make sure that we and our suppliers operate ethically.

The Energy Transition challenge is an opportunity for Halliburton to do what we do best: solve problems. The long-term effects of moving to a lower carbon-based energy economy are difficult to predict, but we are actively preparing for the transition through emissions reduction across our value chain. We embrace the challenge of giving energy producers the solutions they need to continue to power the world with minimal impact on the environment.

Sustainability at Halliburton, therefore, means continuing to serve our customers, employees, stakeholders, and communities in an environmentally, socially, and ethically responsible way. Through our six guiding principles, we will continue to do so, now and in the future.

We base our Halliburton sustainability strategy on our material Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues. We identify and update these issues annually through engagement with our primary stakeholders: employees, customers, shareholders, suppliers, governments, trade associations, and community organizations. 

Our material ESG issues are: 

  • Health, Safety, and Wellness 

  • Corporate Governance, Business Ethics, and Transparency 

  • Climate Change: Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction, Energy Efficiency, and Alternative Energy 

  • Regulatory Management 

  • Information Security/Data Management 

  • Risk and Crisis Management 

  • Continuous Improvement 

  • Environmental Stewardship: Water, Waste, Responsible Resource Use, and Biodiversity 

  • Board Leadership and Inclusion 

  • Economic Performance 

  • Human Rights 

  • Benefits and Compensation 

  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

  • Supply Chain Sustainability 


Our strategy is supported by our Sustainability Commitments which are presented in our 2021 Annual Sustainability Report.  


We have set science-informed targets to help us achieve our emissions reduction goals.

We have a purpose – to help customers deliver the affordable energy provided by oil and gas – in a more effective, efficient, safe, and ethical manner – while minimizing environmental impact.
