The power of principles

Our role in mitigating climate change

We are committed to reducing our energy consumption, waste and emissions, and we convey best environmental practices to all of our employees and stakeholders.

Honesty, fairness and transparency

We have always focused on honesty and fairness, but in recent years, transparency has become increasingly important. Transparency is also the driving force behind our implementation of a whistle-blower arrangement.

Our responsibility

Environmentally, ethically and socially responsible operation

want to meet all challenges in an environmentally, ethically and socially responsible way. We continue to develop Semco Maritime with a strategic approach to cost-effective and sustainable models that differentiate us from our competitors, create value for our customers and keep our focus on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Our customers demand high-quality projects delivered at the right time and at the right cost. Our global presence means many stakeholders and a potentially great environmental impact. We strive to meet each new challenge in an environmentally, ethically and socially responsible way. Our purpose is clear. We want to play an important role in meeting the world’s growing energy demand in a safe and sustainable way. In 2019, we took several important steps towards creating the desired balance between the business areas Renewables and Oil & Gas.

We use the 10 principles as a common frame of reference, and together with the Sustainable Development Goals they serve as a solid platform and guideline for all our CSR activities. The principles and development goals set the basis of cooperation not only for Semco Maritime, but also for our suppliers around the world.
