Boskalis Sustainability Report 2020



Strategy and ambition SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2020 – BOSKALIS

The first tier of our sustainability strategy focuses on our four purpose cornerstones – the core areas of our business that create economic and societal value. Based on an SDG assessment our business interacts and contributes to several SDGs. In 2015, the United Nations developed 17 SDGs comprising a common set of 17 goals and 169 sub-targets. The goals call for worldwide action among governments, business and civil society to end poverty, ensure prosperity for all and protect the planet. We aim to help realize these goals where we can through our business. To identify which SDGs are most relevant to our activities and where Boskalis can contribute the most we completed an SDG assessment, using the approach of the SDG Compass, a guide for business action developed by the Global Reporting Initiative, the UN Global Compact and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. In line with this approach, we determined the extent to which we can contribute to the SDGs and the risks and opportunities they can represent for us throughout our value chain. This included assessing the impact our activities could have on the SDGs and rating our contribution to each of the 169 sub-targets. As a result, five SDGs have been identified as being most relevant to Boskalis:

SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

SDG 13: Climate Action SDG 14: Life Below Water
