Climate change and sustainability are two of the biggest challenges of our time. At Semco Maritime, we have an important role to play in the green energy transition. We have a responsibility and we have a unique opportunity to make a positive difference!
With more than 40 years of experience in the offshore Energy Industry and more than 20 years in Renewables, we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to bring to the transition to a low-carbon energy future. We are proud to be able to use skills and expertise gained through our many years in the offshore industry.
Although our core business is still currently spread between Renewable Energy and Oil & Gas, Oil & Gas is not contradictory to sustainability. Access to affordable and reliable energy is key to people and progress (as outline by the UN with SDG #7). In the short to medium-term future, renewable energy is not sufficient to ensure enough energy for everyone. For this reason, Oil & Gas needs to be included in the energy mix, as we transition to a sustainable energy future.
To ensure this, we have created a new and ambitious sustainability strategy with three focus areas:
- Environmental protection
- Safe and responsible business
Environmental protectionSafeguarding life on earth is another major challenge and the United Nations has called for urgent action to protect the environment. We have an obligation and that is why environmental protection is one of the three pillars of our strategy.
Safe and responsible business
The third pillar of our sustainability strategy relates to being a safe and responsible business. Health and Safety are core elements of our daily operations - and we live by the motto “Safety is part of our DNA.”

Semco Maritime and the Sustainable Development Goals
Our sustainability strategy is actively aligned with seven of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that we have identified as most relevant for our company and industry.
Being a long-term player in the Energy Industry and an active supporter of the growth of Renewables, we can make the biggest contributions to SDG #7, Affordable and Clean Energy. In alignment with SDG #13, Climate Action, we have outlined our roadmap to carbon neutrality in our sustainability strategy, also contributing to ensuring clean energy. We are tackling these goals though our core business and through the decarbonisation focus area of our sustainability strategy.
Through the second focus area of our sustainability strategy, environmental protection, we are contributing to SDG #9, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, SDG #12, Responsible Consumption and Production, and SDG #14, Life Below Water.
Through our third focus area, safe and responsible business, we are contributing to SDG #5, Gender Equality and SDG #8, Decent Work and Economic Growth.
