Samskip and Sustainability

Our commitment is demonstrated by ISO14001:2019 certification.

Samskip is one of the very first Dutch companies whose Environmental Management System is recognised under the renewed Quality Assurance scheme. Our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint are continuous and focus on three areas: Social & Environment, Quality and Profitability.

And, to measure our progress, Samskip uses five key performance indicators. We calculate exactly how much we are: increasing the intermodal component in services in tonne miles; reducing emissions per km; reducing KWh; reducing paper use in kg; and reducing water use in liters.

This is because the Samskip Corporate Sustainability strategy touches all aspects of our activities; our employees even receive ‘sustainable guidelines' to encourage environmental responsibility. Our goal is to benefit society and Samskip as a business, by improving resource efficiency, reducing waste and reducing risks.
