We strive to help the environment by contributing to the renewables market and reducing the environmental impact of our operations.
Contributing to the renewables and sustainable infrastructure markets
The demand for energy is increasingly being met by renewables such as solar, wind, biomass and tidal energy. New major infrastructure and building projects increasingly need to take environmental issues into account. Reduction of fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions is therefore increasingly significant in determining the nature of the projects carried out around the world. With our technology, expertise and knowledge, the demand for sustainable energy and sustainable infrastructure and construction creates a range of new opportunities in new markets.
Reducing the environmental impact of our operations
We aim to promote energy saving in our activities and are constantly increasing our use of sustainable materials. We work as a service provider and do not own or operate any production facilities. The largest environmental impact of our operations relate to fuel consumption by our fleet of vessels and vehicles and use of materials at our office locations. As a consequence, these are the areas that we focus on.
Our goal is to attain a certified environmental management system (ISO 14001 or equivalent) for all our key operating companies (those operating companies with a relatively high risk profile). By the end of 2014, 81% of our key operating companies were certified or were close to certification.
