CALGARY, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Vermilion Energy Inc. ("Vermilion", the "Company", "We" or "Our") (TSX, NYSE: VET) is pleased to announce the release of our first Sustainability Report detailing our efforts to generate environmental, social, and economic benefits for all stakeholders. This inaugural report provided a framework for describing how we approach sustainability in our operations, and to recognize our achievements, detail our challenges and establish targets for progress.
"Embedding sustainability into business strategy does far more than mitigate safety, environmental, financial and reputational risks," said Lorenzo Donadeo, Chief Executive Officer. "It also offers opportunities to generate economic and social benefits for both the company and the community - to create shared value."
In 2013, Vermilion:
- Produced nearly 15 million boe of oil and gas
- Generated net revenue of more than $1.2 billion
- Distributed more than $240 million in dividends to our shareholders
- Paid almost $290 million in taxes and royalties in our operating jurisdictions
- Invested more than $1.1 million in community support
- Devoted $37 million to protecting our environment
Vermilion used the Global Reporting Initiative G-4 framework to develop our 2013 Sustainability Report. The full 2013 Sustainability Report can be viewed and downloaded online at www.vermilionenergy.com/sustainability. A hard-copy of our 2013 Sustainability Highlights is available and can be requested online or by emailing your request to [email protected].
