Abstract

The study has proposed an Environmental Key Performance Index (EKPI) for offshore and onshore oil and gas activities in compliance with international and Vietnamese regulations. This EKPI will serve as a tool for oil and gas companies in Vietnam to evaluate and measure their environmental protection performance and sustainable development. Through the EKPI evaluation results, companies will find solutions to improve quality in waste management, strive for efficient use of energy and resources, and save operating costs; at the same time monitor the development trend of the companies in linkage with environmental protection and sustainable development goals.
