Message from the CEO

As a global company and an oilfield service industry leader, Baker Hughes strives to operate in a sustainable manner.

Many aspects of our business contribute to corporate social responsibility (CSR). These include our commitment to health, safety, and the environment, technology development programs, and development of a diverse, inclusive workforce. It also encompasses our community involvement and commitment to being a responsible, legally compliant corporate citizen.

CSR is strongly supported by the Baker Hughes corporate culture, whose core values are integrity, teamwork, performance and learning. Guided by these values, Baker Hughes employs people in more than 80 countries. Every day, we work together to promote safety and reduce the environmental impact of developing oil and natural gas. We contribute to the communities where we work and support local academic institutions and students. We also ensure that we run our business according to the highest ethical standards.

I’m very proud of the positions Baker Hughes achieved in the Dow Jones World Sustainability Index, Newsweek Green Rankings, and Computerworld’s Green-IT Awards. However, Baker Hughes understands that CSR requires a long-term commitment. We look forward to reporting our ongoing progress in this important area.
