A journey towards sustainable achievements

For many years now, Heerema has believed that a responsible company has an obligation to act in a sustainable manner. Our sustainability journey started in 2011, when the first sustainability report was written.

Naturally, much has happened since then. In 2013, the decision was made to outfit the Sleipnir with dual-fuel engines running on LNG (one of the first in the world of its size) and in 2015 Heerema moved to a new office that was heralded as one of the most sustainable offices in the world according to the World Green Building Council. In 2017, with combined efforts from Heerema employees including upper management, a “Sustainability Roadmap” has been created. In 2019, a contract was signed with Eneco and the Port of Rotterdam to fully electrify our vessels, virtually eliminating all emissions.
