Taking bigger steps toward a smaller footprint.

What began as an oil and gas adventure in our home country of Norway has become a global energy journey. We support the Paris agreement and we want to do our part to ensure that the world we live in has a long and bright future. That’s why we’re dedicated to innovations that will help us continue to provide the world with the energy it needs, while reducing carbon emissions. For society, and more importantly, for our planet.

Our commitment

Powering the world and empowering people.


Providing the world with energy is our business. But we’re also passionate about the people we work with and the communities we operate in. In Equinor how we deliver is as important as what we deliver. That’s why safety is our number one priority. We’re committed to the safety and security of our employees, partner and suppliers.

Being a values-based company means we choose to support organizations that empower people all over the world. We’re eager to spark young people's interest in subjects such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We also believe in doing our part to ensure the wellbeing and progress of the people and communities impacted by our activities.
