Corporate Social Responsibility
In our CSR report we account for material and relevant non-financial aspects of our performance arising from our strategy and core activities. We report in accordance with the international guidelines set out by the Global Reporting Initiative (version G3-1). In selecting the performance indicators and compiling our CSR report, we take the information requirements of our main stakeholders into account. In mid-2013, we have set ourselves the objective to have the entire CSR report verified by an independent external party within the next few years. This report is a major first step in that direction with the verification of our safety record for 2013.
Our strategy is aimed at sustainable design and execution of our solutions around the globe. In order to safeguard our social, societal and environmental responsibilities as much as possible, our CSR policy focuses on the key areas where our impact is greatest:
- Our social performance is mainly concerned with our employees, with the objectives being to promote their safety, opportunities for self-development and well-being.
- Our societal performance is expressed in contributions to local communities, investment in education, research and knowledge transfer, and social sponsorship and donations.
- Our environmental performance is mainly concerned with limiting and preventing a negative impact on the environment, with objectives being further expansion of our environmental expertise, the provision of the eco-dynamic designs and the ongoing investment in and deployment of the environmentally friendly equipment.
Since 2012 we have taken part in the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project). Early in 2013 Boskalis Nederland reached the highest level of the CO₂ performance ladder (level 5).
The 2013 CSR report (at GRI level B) is available on the corporate website www.boskalis.com/csr.
