Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: Founded in 1919, Halliburton is one of the world’s largest providers of products and services to the energy industry. With more than 72,000 employees, representing 140 nationalities in approximately 80 countries, the company serves the upstream oil and gas industry throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir – from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction and completion, and optimizing production through the life of the field. Our experience with complex reservoirs that are characterized by increased service intensity, accelerated investments in our people and infrastructure to support international growth, and a well-integrated technology strategy set us apart in this industry.

Our goal is to secure a distinct and sustainable competitive position as an oilfield service company by delivering services and products to our customers that maximize their production and recovery and realize proven reserves from difficult environments. Our objectives are to:
• create a balanced portfolio of services and products supported by global infrastructure and anchored by technological innovation with a well-integrated digital strategy to further differentiate our company;
• reach a distinguished level of operational excellence that reduces costs and creates real value from everything we do;
• preserve a dynamic workforce by being a preferred employer to attract, develop, and retain the best global talent; and
• uphold the ethical and business standards of the company and maintain the highest standards of health, safety, and environmental performance.

Halliburton believes safety is everyone’s business. That’s why every person at every worldwide location makes safety awareness their number one priority. Every member of every Halliburton team is tasked with taking personal ownership of his or her own safety and the safety of others. Our goal is to keep our people and the environments in which they work, safe and healthy. To that end, we put policies and procedures in place to make sure that adherence to proper safety practices is a 24/7 commitment on everyone’s part.

For us sustainability is much more than simply an item on an agenda. At Halliburton, sustainability is infused into everything we do. The goal of our sustainability efforts is to be welcomed as a good corporate neighbour. This has several components, starting with a commitment to do no harm to the environment. Through the relationships we build, we support social and economic growth in the communities where we do business. Our technologies are assessed for their potential to deliver sustainable benefits not only to our Company and our customers but also to the energy-using world. In everything, we validate our progress through transparency and reporting, with thorough documents such as our Corporate Sustainability Report. Sustainability thinking influences the way we approach our business every day, and we regard it as the responsibility of every employee. It can be a competitive advantage; it is certainly an advantage to our neighbours, both nearby and in the global community. Sustainability will continue to reach into every corner of our Company, and to shape every aspect of our future.

At Halliburton, devoting time and resources to charitable causes—wherever our people live and work—has been central to our corporate culture since we were founded. Whether it is working with Habitat for Humanity to build neighbourhood homes, or supporting local youth, the environment or the treatment and eradication of disease, Halliburton strives to make a heartfelt difference in approximately 80 countries around the world.
