Technip Gains EDGE in Gender Equality Performance

French oilfield service firm announced late Thursday that it had become the first company in the energy industry to become EDGE certified. EDGE is the global standard for gender equality in the workplace.

Standing for Economic Dividends for Gender Equality, the EDGE standard was launched by the World Economic Forum in 2011 and is aimed across all industries and countries. EDGE certification has been designed to help companies not only create an optimal workplace for women and men but also benefit from it. 

Technip said that its sites in Brazil, France and Italy – including its flexible pipe manufacturing plants in Brazil and France and its headquarters – have been certified for EDGE.

Technip CEO Thierry Pilenko commented in a company statement:

"Gender diversity is absolutely strategic for the group. We have to give the same opportunities to our women and our men. It is part of our inclusive work culture at Technip which helps us make better decisions and build creative balanced project teams. This means more growth and a strong differentiator in the long term to take Technip even further."
