The social responsibility indicators generated by oil companies currently make up one of main aspects to be taken into account when assessing the impact caused by the oil business, the competitiveness levels of the sector's companies and their institutional image. Sustaining quality relationships with society, company employees, suppliers, customers and with the environment is the foremost condition for attaining good results in a market without frontiers. This is an ever more competitive universe constantly flooded by new requirements from society and governments, both of which demand transparency, an ethical stance and social returns. Ten years after Rio 92, it is expected that the Congress become the new venue for discussing trends in the energy area, with emphasis on sustainable development.
