Nexen has a 'green team' distributed throughout the organisation who are charged with identifying opportunities to reduce their environmental footprint at all stages of the project life cycle, from the earliest stages of design through construction, operation and ultimate abandonment and remediation. As an organisation, they attempt to recycle and reuse wherever possible and have recycle bins in all offices. The company has an unswerving commitment to the environment and social responsibility. They match all employees fundraising pound for pound and sponsor a number of causes ranging from school cricket teams to cancer charities.
