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.
Our sustainability strategy
Damen has the ambition to become the most sustainable maritime solution provider in the world. We will deliver products and services that leave a positive impact on the environment and society, ensuring our long-term resilience. This is aligned with our values and is a must have for our employees, customers, suppliers, financial institutions and local communities.
"Two megatrends that will determine our activities in the coming decades are sustainability and digitalisation."
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?
