For over a century, Wagenborg has taken its responsibility in the field of health, safety, environment and quality. Wagenborg was one of the first shipping companies in the world to gain ISO 9001, ISM Code and ISO 14001 certifications in addition to a Clean Shipping Index registration.
With the new policy, the Board of Directors sets clear ambitions in the field of sustainability. CEO Egbert Vuursteen: “In recent decades, Wagenborg has implicitly invested a lot in its people and a more sustainable fleet. Compared to 2008, we have already reduced our CO2 emissions by 17%. However, it is time for us to explicitly integrate sustainability into all our business activities. Our customers also increasingly expect this from us.”
The sustainability policy is based on three pillars with focus areas. Each subsidiary within Wagenborg can give its own concrete interpretation and formulate targets for each theme, which also contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Wagenborg takes active part in the shipping and transport de-carbonizing energy transition. Together with our stakeholders - authorities, clients, investors, public, employees, suppliers - we accept sustainability challenges to reduce our environmental footprint.
As a family owned company we optimize employee health and well-being. Engaged employees are critical for our business. People are encouraged to develop skills and consider new roles and/or responsibilities.
We improve customer needs, costs and procedures by use of innovation. Together with our stakeholders, we transform opportunities and processes into next generation solutions.
