Planet, people, principles

We continue to view environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance as a key lever to transform our company and our industry. Baker Hughes is one of the leaders in the energy sector, and we are pleased to maintain our AA ESG rating by MSCI.



We have made great progress on improving our environmental performance and mobilizing our workforce to reduce greenhouse gas emissions toward our goal of net-zero by 2050. In 2021 we reported a 15% reduction* in our Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions, and progress on many of our other environmental priorities. We are also a signatory of the Methane Guiding Principles that commit us to reduce methane emissions, which has become closer to reality following agreements made at COP26.

Our People


To lead in the energy transition, we know we must retain and develop a globally skilled and diverse workforce. The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have caused us to rethink how we approach flexible work and support our people. In 2021, we focused on strengthening our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs. Led by our Global DEI Council, we improved our talent acquisition processes, enhanced our employee resource groups, and increased our outreach to diverse organizations. In the US, we launched a new educational partnership with four historically black colleges and universities.



Safety, health, integrity, compliance, and human rights are foundational elements of our culture. We continue to be guided by our values and our governance structure. Our disciplined approach to occupational safety, health, and emergency management helped us to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, while implementing robust vaccination and return-to-work programs. I am proud Baker Hughes acts with integrity through maintaining ethical supply chains and promoting respect for fundamental human rights.
