Boskalis jaarverslagen 2011

Policy

Our primary activities contribute to the economic development and safety of a region. In addition where possible we support local communities, engage in social sponsorship and donations, and invest in education and knowledge transfer.

Our responsibility to society is set out in our strategy and our Statement of General Business Principles. Our strategy states that we seek to provide sustainable all-round solutions for infrastructural challenges in the maritime, coastal and delta regions of the world. Our Statement of General Business Principles asserts that we do not do business in countries subject to international and relevant national embargoes, and that we respect human rights as set out in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We will not offer, purchase, request or accept bribes or any other favors for the purpose of acquiring or bestowing any improper business, financial or personal advantage. We will not undertake commercial activities in countries where it is made impossible for us to adhere to our Statement of General Business Principles. We also respect intellectual property rights and will operate in fair competition by complying with relevant competition laws.
