Sustainable ways to power the world is our most important focus.

Operating in a sustainable way is at the core of everything we do. From our purpose, values and strategy our legacy is one of turning natural resources into energy for people and progress for society in a responsible way. 

Our oil and gas producing assets on the Norwegian Continental Shelf are amongst the most carbon efficient in the world and our ambition is to be a global leader in offshore wind. 

In the United States, we operate with the same ambitions and values while pursuing solutions for the future through collaboration and partnerships.  

We’re leading innovative work in partnership with expertise across industries to solve our biggest challenges and shape the energy of the future. It’s no small task transforming the energy industry–but together, we’re on our way.

The need for a low carbon future poses new challenges that require partnerships, collaboration and innovative minds to create new energy solutions. We recognize that we’re not the only ones with big ideas for sustainable ways to power the world. That's why we closely partner with industry peers, NGOs and leading academic institutions. Many of these partnerships are led from the United States, one of our key innovation hubs.


Oil and Gas

Equinor’s oil & gas production.
