Saipem provides engineering, procurement, construction, and drilling services for onshore and offshore oil and gas industry. In 2007, the company started building a new facility for the fabrication of offshore structures like topsides, jackets, piles, and decks on Karimun Island in Indonesia. Recognizing the significance of the investment both for the company and for Karimun Island, Saipem decided to measure the socio-economic impact of the fabrication yard construction phase from 2007 to 2011.

This case study describes how Saipem, supported by DuPont Sustainable Solutions, applied the Measuring Impact Framework of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), in conjunction with a number of other specific tools.

The results of the measurement exercise, covering approximately 100 types of impacts, highlighted a number of areas where important adaptations to the company’s local content strategy and communication plan were needed.
