By executing our sustainability strategy we aim to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) most relevant to Boskalis’ business and stakeholders. Our materiality assessment, stakeholder engagement and SDG analysis played an essential role in the development of this strategy, which has been closely guided by our senior leadership team to ensure integration with our business strategy.

Energy Transition

By delivering the offshore energy infrastructure that society needs, particularly for offshore wind energy, we help to advance the energy transition.

Climate Change Adaptation

Through our coastal defense and riverbank protection activities we are protecting people and the natural environment from the consequences of climate change, such as rising sea levels and extreme weather events.

Salvage and marine ecosystem protection

Our marine salvage business helps protect economic value and the oceans from environmental disasters.

Shared value focus areas

Our shared value focus areas recognize Boskalis’ capability to create economic value while addressing societal needs and challenges. We aim to advance our societal contribution to these shared value focus areas and strengthen our business at the same time.

Sustainability focus areas

Our sustainability strategy recognizes five sustainability focus areas. It is in these areas that we want to further innovate and collaborate to develop and apply new technologies and approaches that can help minimize the negative and enhance the positive impact of our business.

Responsible business foundations

The third element and foundation of our strategy is to manage our business and projects in a profitable and responsible manner. Our responsible business principles continue to be framed in our General Code of Business Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct , which are based on international guidelines and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We endorse the principles of the International Labor Organization and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
