We are committed to reducing our environmental impact. How do we achieve this? By continually working towards optimal product design and sustainable production methods at all our facilities. This also includes making our personnel aware of environmental issues in their day-to-day work. What’s more, we have won several awards that recognise our efforts towards innovative and environmentally friendly designs.

From the initial design process all the way to the end of a ship’s life – our commitment to the environment is always present.

Damen is committed to ensure building processes are executed with minimal environmental impact.


  • Damen’s designers are investigating the development a new generation of cleaner ships.
  • Our designs aim to optimise energy efficiency and minimise environmental impact without losing performance and reliability.
  • We consider local environmental laws when selecting a vessel’s primary and secondary systems.
  • Our design team is on hand to discuss any requirements regarding environmental friendly solutions.

Production process

  • We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our production processes.
  • Damen adheres to, and often exceeds, all local environmental laws.
  • We work according to the Damen Code of Conduct – applying best practices in our building processes.
  • We promote prudent environmental practice of all subcontractors and suppliers.
At Damen, we are committed to conducting ourselves in a responsible manner to protect people in every area of the world in which we operate.
