About our certificates

Baggerbedrijf de Boer B.V. – Dutch Dredging B.V. (hereafter referred to as The Company) owns several company certificates with which we can demonstrate that we comply with national and international standards for the guaranteeing of quality, health, safety and environmental aspects within our scope of work.

This is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

This certification stands for specifies requirements for an environmental management system (EMS) to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.

This is the abbreviation for Safety Health and the Environment (SHE) Checklist Contractors and is intended to make it possible for our company to operate with greater safety awareness and reduce the number of incidens. However, in fact the SCC is much more than just a checklist. It is a versatile and comprehensive programme for testing and certifying the SHE management systems of service companies. Principals increasingly impose SCC certification as a mandatory requirement.

C02 awareness certificate, level 3. The CO2 performance ladder is an instrument to stimulate companies participating in procurement to be aware of their CO2 emissions in their own business operations and in the performance of projects. This involves in particular saving energy, using materials efficiently and using renewable energy. (The English version of the 2021-2024 certificate will follow as soon as possible.)

CSR - CO₂

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the new “buzzword” that is increasingly common. Tenderers want to “purchase sustainably”. Clients are therefore increasingly asking for a CO₂ certificate. With this we demonstrate that we operate in an environmentally friendly manner. Although care for the environment is self-evident, in our view, we have obtained a certificate at level 3 of the CO₂ Performance Ladder, which actually demonstrates this.

The entire CSR story is a reflection of what you see in society. We think it is only normal - which is also evident from our sustainability vision - that you treat your people and the environment with care and use as little fuel as possible. Now, however, the forces are joined, together you of course have much more influence on that.

At the beginning of 2012, Dredging Company de Boer Holding B.V. obtained her CO₂ certificate at level 3 of the CO₂ Performance Ladder. The CO₂ Performance Ladder is an instrument to encourage companies participating in tenders to act CO consciously in their own business operations and in the implementation of projects. This mainly concerns energy savings, efficient use of materials and the use of sustainable energy. This is also included in our CO2 Reduction Policy.

A highlight in the field of sustainability is the construction and commissioning of our bed leveller “Peter” in 2018. Our company is now the proud owner of the world's greenest and cleanest bed leveller!
