Mission, strategy and policy


Boskalis is a leading services provider in the field of innovative and competitive all-round solutions to infrastructure challenges in the maritime, coastal and delta regions of the world. We aim to design and realize our solutions in the most sustainable way, with safety being given top priority.


Our corporate strategy is focused on growth. In doing so we seek to achieve a healthy balance between economic value creation for our clients and our business on the one hand, and care for the environment and societal and social responsibility on the other.
For a detailed description of our corporate strategy please refer to pages 12-16 of our Annual Report.


Our CSR policy focuses on the following key areas because these are where our impact on people, the environment and on society in general is greatest.

  • Our social performance is mainly concerned with our employees and our efforts to promote their safety, self-development opportunities and wellbeing.
  • Our societal performance is expressed in contributions to local communities, investment in education, research and knowledge transfer, and social sponsorship and donations.
  • Our environmental performance is mainly concerned with limiting and preventing a negative impact on the environment, and involves us focusing on the further expansion of our environmental expertise, the provision of eco-dynamic designs and the ongoing investment in and use of environmentally friendly equipment.
  • Our economic performance is aimed at the continuity and maintaining of our leading position in our industry and value creation for our stakeholders.

We will take a close look at our performance in these areas further on in this report.
