Summary  

As part of license-rounds for exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons in Greenland, the companies are requested to submit an application for qualification to be approved by the Greenland Government. This includes an evaluation of the company’s environmental performance. The present report describes an environmental performance evaluation system, which includes a point system based on the company’s statistical data on selected environmental indicators. The point system awards and summarizes point scores from a developed template in order to achieve an objective and transparent evaluation as possible of the company’s environmental performance.
