Introduction

At Mammoet we want to operate in a safe, efficient and ethical way, protecting the planet and supporting the communities we work in.

Creating value through sustainability

 

As the market leader for engineered heavy lifting and transport, we believe we should be at the forefront of sustainability efforts within our industry. At Mammoet we want to operate in a safe, efficient and ethical way, protecting the planet and supporting the communities we work in, while widening the value we offer to our customers.

Across Mammoet many sustainability initiatives have grown up over the years, often starting at a grass roots level. However, we are now taking steps to advance our sustainability performance in a more impactful way, delivering an integrated approach to sustainability across the business. This integrated way of working has been brought together in a roadmap that directs our sustainability efforts to 2030.

Mammoet's roadmap for sustainability provides targets and focus areas - linked to the UN’s sustainable development goals. Through it we aim to create new partnerships with customers, suppliers and communities on joint sustainability initiatives. The approach builds on existing innovations while exploring new opportunities such as alternative fuel sources and circularity in parts and equipment. Furthermore, it embraces Mammoet's programs for health and safety, diversity, ethics and compliance and corporate social responsibility. It aims to add value to these programs without duplicating our existing work.

Helping the world to grow sustainably

For more than 200 years Mammoet has led the way in the engineered heavy lifting and transport industry. We take great pride in our history and accomplishments of the past. We also believe in continuously raising the standards within our profession through our creative engineering, safe delivery and by improving our sustainability performance. 
 
The world is growing - there is an increasing demand for energy, resources and infrastructure. This growth creates economic opportunities, bringing jobs and skills to communities. In the decades to come Mammoet will be helping the world to grow, through our lifting, transporting, installing and decommissioning activities. We want to do this in a more sustainable way. We also realize we cannot do this alone. 
 
By working closely with others and focusing our efforts in line with the UN Sustainability goals we can contribute to a more sustainable future for all. We will continue to set standards in our industry by working towards these goals. Our belief is that through these goals we can contribute to the collective good - for our people, our business partners and the communities we live in.

Mammoet's Sustainability Roadmap

Our ambition for sustainability performance improvement

Driving sustainability

 

To guide, drive and measure sustainability, in a way that will increase the impact of our sustainability actions across our global business, we have adopted a sustainability roadmap. Our roadmap outlines key focus areas through to 2030.

The actions we will take to deliver environmental, social and commercial benefits, include:
  • Creating joint sustainability initiatives by identifying and building partnerships with our customers, suppliers and the communities in which we operate.
  • Exploiting and innovating new sustainability opportunities, such as low carbon fuels, energy sources and the circular economy. For example, developing designs for parts and equipment that enable us to reuse secondary and raw materials and help to retain their value and reduce resource consumption.
  • Working alongside and complementing our existing programs for health and safety, diversity, ethics and compliance and corporate social responsibility.  
  • Improving our efficiency and processes to minimize the impact of our operations and reduce resource use across the business.
 
The roadmap represents our commitment to achieving clear sustainability goals. It encompasses four key themes, each with a set of targets to support them, so we can measure our progress and performance, and strive for continual improvement.
 
The themes are:
 
 
Each of these themes has been linked to one of the United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDGs). 
 
 
By delivering against the UN-led sustainable development goals within each theme, we demonstrate the extent of our commitment to shaping a sustainable future for our world. And, in collaborating with our stakeholders and the wider community, we aspire to have a greater impact as part of a global initiative.
 
 
 
 
 
Erica Gray, Global Sustainability Manager

Sustainability performance is a fundamental element of operating responsibly. As a business we recognize the need to protect the planet and support the communities in which we work. It widens the value we offer to our customers. It also prepares us for the future.
 
The energy mix that currently powers global economic progress will change in the coming years. By embracing more sustainable ways of thinking we can improve the way we manage the risks, challenges and opportunities that the energy transition will bring. Additionally, being a responsible business is consistent with our commitment to conducting business with honesty, integrity, loyalty and openness in a safe, efficient and ethical way.
 
We also acknowledge the need to contribute to wider global efforts on sustainability. By delivering against the UN-led sustainable development goals we add our efforts to those of many other organizations. This provides clear opportunities to combine our approach with that of our customers, our supply chain and wider society in a joint effort that will enable far greater impact and more efficient sustainability outcomes.

Sustainable Engagement

Working in partnership with our supply chain, our customers and the communities we operate in, we develop and enhance sustainable and ethical business practices

Sustainable Engagement is about developing and enhancing sustainable and ethical business practices by collaborating and working in partnership with our supply chain, our customers and the communities in which we operate. The roadmap seeks to optimize the impact of responsible activities within our business, coordinating sustainability objectives and initiatives with our stakeholders to maximise their benefits. Through our Sustainable Engagement theme we seek to continue our work with the renewable sector, finding ways to maximize efficiency for customers to make their projects more economically beneficial. We will also be developing joint reporting programs with customers and introducing circular strategies with our parts and equipment supply chain.

 The following targets are in place for this theme:

  • Continue to support the renewables industry, as an integral part of our service portfolio, in driving boundaries and delivering services at increasing scales

Efficient Operations

Improving our operational performance to maximize the efficient use of resources

Efficient Operations improve our operational performance, maximising the efficient use of resources. This can be applied to every element of our business, from reducing the number of air miles our people and equipment fly, becoming more efficient with energy and water, to reducing waste generation while increasing what we recycle. Efficient Operations means working internally, and also with customers and suppliers, to use resources more sustainably, through sustainable procurement and setting demanding resource efficiency targets.

The targets we have set will drive performance improvements resulting in energy, water, waste and cost savings:

  • Reduce CO2 emissions from air travel by 20% per FTE by 2022
  • Reduce fuel costs by 20% per FTE by 2022
 
 By 2025:
  • 100% of Mammoet’s energy from renewables
  • 60% reduction in waste generation
  • 40% reduction in water consumption 
  • 60% reduction in GHG emissions per FTE
 
 By 2030:
  • 80% reduction in waste generation
  • 60% reduction in water consumption
  • 80% reduction in GHG emissions per FTE

(Compared to 2020 levels)

 

UN Sustainable Development Goal 12

These targets aim to contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 12 - Responsible consumption and production.
