Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5682ce/most_sustainable_o) has announced the addition of the "Most Sustainable Oil/Gas Service Companies 2008" report to their offering.

The Reputed Annual Study on the World Oil/Gas Sector: Benchmark the World's Leading Companies Against Each Other

If you are a major oil/gas service company, an oil company, an investor, an NGO or part of the sustainability community, the annual 2008 study is perhaps the most detailed and definitive report available on the subject. It covers over 1,800 compliance data, 355 accepted standards per oil/gas service company, around 80 pages, over 115 charts, in-depth analysis and indicates where the oil/gas service business is going with respect to sustainability, social responsibility, corporate governance, ethics and transparency.

Image Impact:

Past oil service studies have been covered in over 30 articles in major trade and general media in the USA, Europe, Latin America and Russia. Being ranked in this study entails a substantial impact on a company's image.

Factual, Transparent, Approach:

The M&E method is meanwhile well known for its objectivity and fairness. It allocates single points for each of the over 355 areas of compliance with standards accepted in the oil/gas business and drawn from sources such as SEC, Sarbanes-Oxley, national laws, Dow Jones Sustainability Index, OECD, industry benchmarks, Global Compact, GRI, ILO, OSHA, ISO, IUCN, reserves accounting methods, Millennium Goals and others.

Compare your company with market and other company benchmarks:

-- Which standards are the most popular?

-- Where are you stronger and weaker than the market? Than your key competitors?

-- In which areas do you need improvement?

-- What are the key trends in sustainability to be aware of?

-- Which priorities should you consider in your planning for sustainability, governance, HSE, social responsibility, environmental and transparency programs?

Method - Factual, Transparent:

This report uses a 'Facts Only' method, measuring companies' compliance with recognized standards in sustainability, corporate governance, social responsibility (CSR) and ethics customized to the oil industry. We surveyed all companies and researched public information services to determine actual point-by-point compliance with these standards. All percentages refer to the number of points with which a company complies out of a total of 355.
