From our headquarters in Papendrecht, we operate around the world as a leading player in dredging, offshore energy and marine services. At Boskalis we formulate our corporate business plan with a clear eye on the megatrends that relate to our business, such as growing world trade, energy consumption, population growth and climate change. Through our strategy and responsible business practices, we contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which form the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs call for worldwide action by organizations and governments. Boskalis endorses the SDGs and focuses on the SDGs that are most relevant to its business. More information on the relevance of our work to SDGs is provided in the Appendix. We are a project based organization. On this page we have set out the key elements that are relevant for each project, and how we create value along the way. In each of these steps we touch upon different SDGs.
