What is Heerema’s definition of sustainability?

A commonly used interpretation is the Brundtland definition:

"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

This definition is also adhered to by the UN. A slightly more tangible definition is "the Triple Bottom line", or the balance between People, Planet and Profit. This is a commonly used definition for business and makes it less abstract for most people.


Where can I find information on (carbon) footprint and emissions of Heerema and its vessels?

All the information you need is in the Data & Emissions Page. This data could be used to (roughly) interpret emissions footprint for HMC projects. If you are looking for more specific yearly data, try the Sustainability Report.


How do I determine the carbon footprint of a project?

Generally speaking, the carbon footprint for a Heerema Project consists of 3 factors: Procurement and Fabrication, Offshore Installation & Logistics and Flying. The largest part of the footprint is usually the offshore and logistics parts, consisting of the vessel consumption in fuel times the emission factor used. The emission factors are stated in the Data & Emissions Page. If you are looking for average fuel consumption of the different vessels, try the Sustainability Report. More information can be requested from the Sustainability Advisor.


Where can I find some slides regarding the sustainability approach of Heerema?

If you are looking for general context and why Heerema finds sustainability important, visit the Sustainability Beliefs page. If you are looking for how we implement sustainability into our company, visit the Roadmap & Themes page. If you are looking for slides for specific projects, visit the Initiatives page.

A more general introduction to sustainability within Heerema that encompasses all these topics can be found here.
