Policy and objectives
We see innovation and enhanced sustainability in the chain as one of the core components of our CSR strategy. Our most important chain partners are clients and suppliers.
To make our supply chain more sustainable still, we will be engaging in the ongoing intensification and deepening of the dialogue with our chain partners in our Dredging and Offshore Energy activities by involving our second-line suppliers. Together with them, we are continuing to work, often in cross-sectoral partnerships, on innovative developments in the area of cleaner engines and environmentally friendly fuels, energy savings, the sustainable dismantling of our vessels, and cradle-to-cradle and recycling concepts. In the chain, we have a code of conduct for our suppliers and we.conduct an annual implementation scan to monitor compliance.
