In 2016, Queiroz Galvão Oil and Gas (QGOG) hired Catavento to assist the company in implementing the action plan formulated the year before, through the creation of a Sustainability Working Group. In addition, Catavento recommended the integration of sustainability issues in the company’s strategy and decision-making process.

Previous work

Queiroz Galvão Óleo e Gás (QGOG) and Catavento worked together in an Oil & Gas sector sustainability and competitiveness project throughout 2015.

The first stage of the project mapped the most relevant issues for QGOG’s long term success using Catavento’s priorization methodology, through trend analysis, stakeholders’ interviews and desk research. A benchmark analysis took place in the second stage of the project, with a survey of the best Oil & Gas market practices regarding sustainability topics. During the third stage, Catavento developped an action plan with the help of some of QGOG managers to adress the material issues. Finally, during the last stage of the project, Catavento’s team drew a reporting strategy for QGOG, through an internal diagnosis, indicators survey and elaboration of a reporting structure.
