Interview with His Excellency Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber

His Excellency Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber

UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and ADNOC Group CEO

What role does technology play in the ADNOC brand and your reputation

among key stakeholders?

Technology plays a key role in enabling us to maximize greater value from our

assets and resources to reliably and responsibly deliver energy supplies to our

global customers. This was apparent last year as we navigated volatile market

conditions following the Covid-19 pandemic and responded with agility and strength

to the challenges we faced. In the same vein, technology is at the core of our

environmental peformance, a driving force of our ESG position and, as a national oil

company, our contributions to the UAE’s sustainable development agenda.

How has the response to this tough year (Covid-19, oil price volatility)

helped differentiate the ADNOC brand and business?

Our recognition as the most valuable brand in the UAE for the third consecutive year

and our ranking among the top ten brands in the oil and gas industry is testament

to the efforts of my colleagues at ADNOC throughout 2020. We delivered strong

operational and financial performance as a result of our resilience and the fact that

we are benefiting from the transformation we started over four years ago at the

direction of the UAE Leadership. Over this period, we have focused on improving

our performance, strengthening our agility, and reinforcing efficiency throughout

our business. Most importantly, we have focused on reducing our costs and this will

continue to be the case.

Looking forward, what dimensions and strengths of the ADNOC brand will

enable long term sustainable growth?

The ADNOC brand is defined by our values of being collaborative, efficient,

progressive, respectful, and responsible, which are underpinned by an unwavering

focus on protecting health, safety and the environment (HSE). These attributes

inspire the way we do business, guide our decision-making, and lay the foundation

for our long-term growth. Our commitment to our values as well as our focus on

producing the world’s most cost-efficient and carbon-efficient barrels will ensure we

continue to sustainably deliver energy to the world and drive value to the UAE for

decades to come. They will also enable us to drive deeper connections and resonate

with our partners, communities and stakeholders, increase ADNOC’s brand equity

and strengthen our brand proposition.
