CSR Report 2018

IMPACT ON LOCAL COMMUNITIES CSR 2018 – BOSKALIS 32 CONTRIBUTING TO COMMUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD CREATING A SAFER ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN In one of the poorer neighborhoods of Bahía Blanca in Argentina, Boskalis donated EUR 6,000 to a pre-school for the construction of a wall and to carry out much-needed repairs to the school building. The wall around the play area prevents the children from going out on the road and strangers coming in. The work carried out means the school now offers a safe learning and playing environment. An illustrative selection community projects undertaken by Boskalis in 2018. BUILDING EARTHQUAKE- PROOF HOUSES Dutch-based social enterprise The Mobile Factory builds earthquake-proof houses from earthquake debris. We donated EUR 20,000 to this worthwhile initiative for the construction of 30 houses in a new village. In addition, we shipped two containers of building materials from the Netherlands to Haiti.

BOOSTING SAFETY AND SUPPORTING CHILDREN There are many ways of promoting safety. One is using Safety Hazard Observation Cards (SHOCs). Workers in Nigeria and on our projects in the UK were encouraged to identify potentially hazardous situations and, in doing so, not only support worker safety, but a good cause as well. For every SHOC submitted, we donated to the local Golden Tulip Orphanage in Nigeria and a maritime heritage charity in the UK. Over EUR 2,000 was raised in this way.

SOLAR ENERGY FOR LOCAL SCHOOL During the execution work for a new port and breakwater build in Lekki, Nigeria, and in collaboration with a local NGO, Development Africa, we installed solar panels to provide energy to a local primary school. To help create a safer and healthier environment for the school children, we also had the electrical wiring replaced and the borehole and water tank renovated. The total donation amounted to over EUR 15,000.
