CSR 2018 – BOSKALIS 27

Engaging with and managing our impact on local communities is an increasingly important part of our work. In many cases our presence in a location creates a positive socio-economic impact through local job creation, procurement or community investment. Where we can, we seek to enhance these positive impacts through our community investments or our project management approach. At the same time, we pay close attention to potential adverse impacts on communities from our activities.
