Our ISO 14001 certification, which has been translated into clear and practical guidelines, is an indicator of our permanent focus on applying and improving our environmental performance. We endorse the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises on responsible business conduct, as set out on page 25. Our starting point is not just to prevent or mitigate an adverse impact, but mainly to create opportunities for nature.
With respect to our impact on the environment and the natural surroundings, we specifically focus on:
Having a distinguishing reputation for environmentally-friendly solutions for the sustainable management and development of vulnerable river, delta and coastal areas around the world is increasingly important. This is precisely where a substantial part of our work is located. In addition, mining firms and oil and gas companies keep pushing back the boundaries in terms of the exploration and exploitation of natural resources, which also includes moving into highly sensitive areas. This makes the ability to offer sustainable designs and solutions essential – for dredging work, offshore services and infrastructural works. The great diversity of both our markets and our clients means that we must engage in different emphases and priorities.
