3.10.1Group Enterprise Management Systems (GEMS)
SBM Offshore operates under a Global Enterprise Management System (GEMS), which is structured around three main process domains known as executive processes, core processes and support processes, with the core processes further modelled into the Win, Execute and Operate phases and is represented as shown in the illustration.
Group values (section 1.3 ) and policies are embedded to support the correct governance of SBM Offshore’s organization and business activities. These form the foundation of GEMS and its processes, which are consistently applied throughout all regional centers and fleet operations (in-country offices and vessels).
GEMS allow an integrated end-to-end approach to all the business activities of SBM Offshore and of the joint venture operating companies, with clear and formal ownership of key processes and clear identification of key controls. It provides a cohesive framework for quality and regulatory compliance, health and safety, security of personnel and assets, protection of the environment as well as risk and opportunity management throughout the product lifecycle, ensuring the Company’s sustainability.
GEMS can be accessed in its entirety via SBM Offshore’s online intranet portal which ensures easy access by all employees. In order to support the identity and scope of our joint venture operating companies, dedicated web portals have also been set up with access to applicable information from the central GEMS database.
