Sustainability Roadmap - A Guideline for a Sustainable Company

How we impact the Triple Bottom Line – Moving from Values into Action

HMC uses themes, inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals to nurture sustainability awareness into our work practices. These sustainable themes represent our values and ambitions in achieving our sustainable targets. They are Offshore Excellence, Good Health and Well Being, Reduce Footprint and Emissions and Sustainable Supply Chain Management, which together achieve an optimum balance of the triple bottom line. Excellence is the fourth category which captures undefinable creativity and out of the box thinking. Though the achievements accumulate over the years, and our ambitions are adjusted as we progress in our sustainable journey, the themes remain the same. Each theme has its own projects with targets and persons to be held accountable to develop the sustainable agenda within the company. The main targets and projects for this year are listed below. A list with all the seperate initiatives Heerema can be found here.
