Total Scope 1 and Scope 2 Energy consumed was equal to 130,833 gigajoules (GJ) which includes Stationary Fuel (26%), Mobile Vehicle Fuel (9%), and Acquired Electricity (65%).

Renewable electricity represented 5% of the Total Energy Consumed (5% of 130,833 GJ).

Mobile Vehicle Fuel represented 9% of the Total Energy Consumed (9% of 130,833 GJ), where 4% was On-Road use and 5% was Off-Road use. (Note: as Dril-Quip does not perform services for drilling and pressure pumping, these references are only related to forklift movement and loading product.)

Air emissions of the following pollutants: (1) nitrogen oxides (NOx), excluding nitrogen dioxide (N2O); (2) sulfur oxides (SOx); (3) volatile organic compounds (VOCs); and (4) particulate matter (PM10).


Dril-Quip believes clean air is essential for a healthy population, environment, and economy. We annually review our equipment, processes, and operations and track our air emissions from NOx (excluding N2O), SOx, VOCs, and PM10. We believe maintaining compliance with regulations and local legislation helps us on our environmental journey to continuously improve and reduce our impacts to the environment.

Dril-Quip’s Environmental Management System (EMS), centered around the ISO 14001 principles, is the foundation for how we operate, and it includes sound environmental practices designed for protecting our planet. Environmental risks are mitigated from our activities by incorporating best practices and procedures designed to enhance our global performance. By design, our policies, procedures, and engineering controls act to reasonably control our impact on the environment caused by our processes, people, contractors, and suppliers at our worksites.

Our EMS, coupled with our skillful people, has allowed us to successfully record ZERO industry-recognized spills of 55 gallons or more over the last five years. This achievement includes our engineered products used offshore such as our VXTe™ Vertical Subsea Tree System, which effectively helps our customers mitigate potential fluid loss by eliminating the need to remove the BOP stack once drilling is completed. This technology reduces the potential for environmental release in deepwater applications.

Discussion of strategy or plan to address risks and opportunities related to ecological impacts from core activities.


We are committed to sustaining the balance in alignment with the United Nations (UN) Convention on Biological Diversity, and we will demonstrate this in our business execution. We regularly perform Environmental Site Assessments of our operational practices as part of our environmental management.

We include assessments and perform due diligence of potential and current sites for the impacts our operations may have on land, natural resources, ecosystems, and biodiversity. In addition, our management system is audited annually by external accredited organizations such as DNV to maintain ISO 14001-certification status.

More information about our biodiversity practices can be found here.

Dril-Quip‘s success is built on the health and well-being of our employees, stakeholders, and global community, which is driven by our Goal ZERO initiative. The Goal ZERO initiative spans our organization and our suppliers and supply chain. We require that our employees, stakeholders, and supply chain partners meet the highest health and safety standards in our direct operations and supply chain.

Each employee is responsible for maintaining a safe and healthy workplace by following safety and health rules and practices and reporting all incidents and unsafe acts, behaviors, and conditions. Our principal manufacturing facilities are compliant with ISO 45001:2018 for occupational health and safety.

From 2015 to 2021, we have had a year-over-year reduction in key KPIs with a zero fatality rate and a more than 70% reduction in TRIR and NMFR.
