Our journey towards creating sustainable value(s)

For many years now, Heerema has believed that a responsible company has an obligation to act in a sustainable manner. Our Sustainability Reporting journey officially 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 establish a Shore Power connection allowing our vessels to operate fully on green electricity, preventing emissions. In 2020, we decided to take action now and started investing in certified carbon offset projects that align with our mission to create sustainable value(s). By doing this, we already have a neutral footprint today as we work on further prevention and reduction for the future.
