Our sustainability policy

Our sustainability policy

We are aware of the impact we as a construction company have on our environment. We have a social responsibility that we do not shy away from. In fact, we take responsibility. It goes further than our construction site and a greener society. We dare to choose and take a position.

We show our course and ambitions by joining the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN). We are also getting closer to emission-free construction sites and are committed to the sustainable use of equipment. For mobile cranes, the focus is on the reduction of transport distances and the use of electric cranes or the use of HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) as fuel. This focus is also included in the framework agreement with Saan for the hiring of mobile telephoto cranes and tower cranes.

The highest standard of the CO2 performance ladder
Ballast Nedam has been certified on the highest standard of the CO2 performance ladder since 2012: a CO2 management system. Our high certification has stimulated us to reduce CO2 emissions, both in business operations and in the chain. This requires continuous improvement of insight, further CO2 reduction measures and communication and cooperation in operational management. This both in the execution of projects and in the chain.
