We contribute to the world’s sustainability by providing reliable, affordable and lower-carbon oil and gas.

Environmental and Climate
We aspire to become net zero in scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions in 2026.

• Our priority is to continue reducing our operational carbon footprint by implementing technologies currently available to us.
• We forecast to reduce scope 1 & 2 emissions intensity to 7 kgCO2e/boe by 2026, a 82% decrease compared to 2020.
• In 2023 we recorded a 13% y-o-y reduction of GHG emissions intensity to 15.6 kgCO2e/boe (scope 1 and 2).
• In 2022, we set up Aike, our Nature Based Solutions (NBS) venture, which designs, manages and executes carbon capture projects, staffed with leading local experts, to offset our remaining carbon emissions.
• Aike is currently executing 9 NBS projects for Vista in Argentina, spanning over 26,000 hectares, across 4 provinces.

Signatory to the United Nations Global Compact
In August 2020 we officially joined the United Nations Global Compact program supporting the Ten Principles in the areas of Human Rights, Labor, Environment and Anti-corruption.

By doing so we committed to implementing these principles, incorporating them as part of Vista’s business strategy, culture and day-to-day operations.

Safety Management
We take safety as a critical pillar of our business development.

We made solid progress since we took over the operation of our assets in early 2018. We created a high-performance safety culture among our employees and contractors through the implementation of a corporate Operating Management System in line with IOGP/IPIECA guidelines.

We have implemented robust safety programs (such as the Life Saving Rules), improved reporting capabilities, and established strategic partnerships with our main contractors (One-Team), sharing the same vision, project objectives and performance incentives.

• We had 0 fataltities between 2019 and 2023.
• In 2023 we recorded a total incident rate recordable (TRIR) of 0.2, below 1 for the fourth consecutive year.

We believe diversity, equity and inclusion are a fundamental part of our identity, our culture and our business strategy.

In 2022, we further strengthened the execution of our gender program, leveraging on our three strategic workstreams.

Leadership commitment with DEI
Our Executive Team sponsors key initiatives and has direct oversight of our DEI plan.
All DEI projects and initiatives are executed by the DEI Team, composed of colleagues of different locations, professional roles and backgrounds.

HR plan to attract, develop and retain diverse and inclusive talent.
In 2022, 45% of new hires were women, increasing female percentage in our workforce by 2pp to 22%.
We organized a workshop with female mentors and mentees and invited participants of the 2021 Mentoring Program.
We approved a policy that extends paid maternity and paternity leave periods, and established three soft-landing schemes for mothers of new-born children. We give equal benefits to adopting parents.

Implementation of policies and awareness programs.
During 2022 we approved four DEI-related policies: “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policy”, “Open Doors Policy”, “Workplace Harassment Prevention Policy”, and “Human Rights Policy”.
