Sustainable Future Challenge

Sustainable Future Challenge by OMV

[Translate to English:] OMV

The escalating challenges of climate change and the global commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions are profoundly influencing the oil and gas industry. To secure sustainable long-term prosperity and provide attractive returns to all stakeholders, it is imperative for companies to align with the evolving paradigms of a sustainable economy.

Our partner, OMV – a cornerstone of industrial innovation in Austria – pledges to lead in the development of sustainable fuels, chemicals, and materials by embracing a growth model that prioritizes circular economy and sustainability principles. Engage with the principles outlined in OMV Strategy 2030, and contribute to our collective journey towards a sustainable future. Your proposal should not only resonate with OMV’s strategic ambitions but also demonstrate a profound understanding of the need for solutions that offer substantial social and environmental benefits.
