OMV Petrom, the largest energy company in Southeastern Europe, announces its support for the recommendations issued by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) on climate change risks and opportunities. As the first Romanian company to become a TCFD supporter, OMV Petrom is joining a group of over 1,300 organizations worldwide that have affirmed their support for the TCFD since its voluntary recommendations were released in 2017.

Christina Verchere, CEO OMV Petrom: “OMV Petrom has long been dedicated to sustainable business practices. As an energy company, we are committed to contributing to Romania’s transition to a low-carbon economy. We believe that applying TCFD guidelines of disclosure can greatly enhance transparency and allow our stakeholders to better understand the company’s efforts with regards to climate change. We are hopeful that many other Romanian companies will join us in becoming TCFD supporters, thus contributing to the country’s sustainable economy.”

OMV Petrom’s Sustainability Strategy 2025 sets out clear targets on safety, carbon efficiency, diversity, innovation, business principles and social responsibility.

OMV Petrom has published information on carbon management in its sustainability report since 2018. Through sustained investments, the company has reduced the carbon emissions of its operations by 22% in 2019 compared to 2010. 

Going forward, OMV Petrom will deepen its analysis and disclosure on climate change risks and mitigations.
