Sustainable maritime solutionsDamen’s work on the electrification of the maritime industry falls under the so-called E3 umbrella. That is, environmentally friendly, efficient in operation and economically viable. The shipyards group is currently working on a number of projects for electric vessels.

Maritime Sustainability

We will deliver products and services that leave a positive impact on the environment and society, ensuring our long-term resilience.

"Two megatrends that will determine our activities in the coming decades are sustainability and digitalisation."

The future is ours

Sustainability Compass

Maritime sustainability is the key pillar of Damen's company strategy, therefore we developed our Sustainability Compass. What does sustainability mean to us as a company? How is it rooted within our organisation? And more importantly, how can you benefit from it?

Three pillars

Damen’s sustainability strategy

Our strategy is based on three pillars in order to be closely aligned and integrated into our business routines. We believe that only a comprehensive integration of the maritime sustainability topics into our daily work can lead to the successful transformation of our business. Damen is fully committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and each pillar relates to them and reflects our ambitions to create a more sustainable world.
