Boskalis’ principal strategic objective is aimed at a healthy balance between long-term profitability and our social and environmental responsibility. The reasonable expectations and interests of our stakeholders a key reference point in establishing our CSR strategy.
With our value creation model we connect our CSR material themes to our long-term macro drivers, input, business model and output and show what our impact is in our value chain.
Our corporate strategy and the dialogue with our stakeholders have resulted in our CSR strategy. Based on the dialogue with our stakeholders in 2016 we have updated our materiality matrix to gain insight into the relevance and importance of CSR themes for the company on the one hand and the stakeholders on the other.
Managing our material themes
To manage our material themes we have formulated objectives and identified the associated opportunities and risks or dilemmas. We defined key performance indicators to measure our performance.
