Sustainability

The Vivar Group aspires to be a leader in corporate sustainability. We are committed to the journey — as a business partner, an employer, a community member, an environmental steward and a value creator for shareholders. By thinking and acting sustainably, we will deliver excellent customer service and strong financial results and position the company for a strong future.

At the Vivar Group, sustainability is the way we manage and operate our business to best serve our customers, care for the environment, secure profits and drive long-term prosperity.

Sustainability is a business method that ensures safety, efficiency and responsibility in a manner that protects Vivar Groups employees, communities, shareholders and the environment, now and in the future.

Our daily operations align business performance with a commitment to environmental, social and community stewardship encompassing three elements:

Reduce the environmental footprint of our operations.

  • Transport goods in a manner that minimizes community and environmental impacts.
  • Reduce fuel, energy, water and other resources needed to move each ton-mile of freight.
  • Increase recycling and reuse efforts through waste minimization.
  • Strive to manage and combine the Vivar Group supply chain in consideration of environmental effects and good governance.

Engage openly on sustainability issues.

  • Communicate regularly with customers, employees and stakeholders on sustainability issues, goals and efforts.
  • Provide opportunities to customers, suppliers, employees and communities to actively participate in sustainability programs.
  • Increase transparency and disclosure of our sustainability performance through our annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report and related sustainability disclosures.

Support sustainable development.

  • Collaborate with customers and communities to grow sustainably, considering social, economic and environmental effects.
  • Build innovative infrastructure to support operations and minimize resource use.

Our vision & mission

  • Vision
    An innovative, discerning and socially responsible company; that is what Vivar Group wants to be. We want to be a leading wholesaler in ship supply and maritime services within our market segment.
  • Mission
    We are committed to create added value for our clients, solidly based on flexibility, trust and transparency. We do this by providing reliable, innovative and cost efficient deliveries and services rendered.

We also constantly strive to be a high-quality and high-performing organization. Our continual focus is therefore on developing competencies, invest in our employees and safeguard our stakeholders’ Interests.

OUR CORE VALUES
  • Safety & Health
    We are committed to a safe working attitude in all our operations and in everyday actions. We have a duty of care for the safety and health of our employees, stakeholders and for those we serve. We believe safety is a “mind-set” and an integral part of our day-to-day decision making and services we offer.
  • Clients
    We realise that we depend on our clients, whose trust we have to earn, maintain and retain at all times. We will work closely with our business partners in order to enhance our capabilities to provide high-quality services to our clients and to maintain a flexible and professional organization.
  • Relations
    Our success depends on the abilities and dedication of all employees. We value loyalty, honesty and integrity and we treat each other with respect. We share information and promote teamwork throughout the organization and with our business partners we focus on the wellbeing of our clients. We strive to be an employer of choice, promote training and personal development.
  • Business Partners
    We recognise the importance of our suppliers and (sub) contractors in successfully carrying out our business activities. Therefore, we aim for long-term, mutually rewarding relationships with our business partners.
  • Society
    We adhere to all applicable laws, rules and regulations. We actively support developments that improve the safety of operations in our market segment and that enhance the protection of the environment.
OUR CULTURE
  • Safety
    We believe safety is a “way of being” and a mind-set. We are committed to safe practices in our daily operations and actions, more than compliance to the known norms. Our way is to show our duty of care for the wellbeing and safety of our colleagues and those we serve.
  • Respect
    Everyone has the right to be treated with respect. We despise bad-mouthing or embarrass colleagues intentionally or unintentionally. Our way of communication is direct, honest but always respectful. We will each do our best, give our best and expect the best from each other. The importance of this key value in our business culture cannot not
    be better expressed by the overall shared agreement on zero tolerance in event of misconduct.
  • Discipline
    We are all accountable for delivering what we say we will. There are no excuses! We are excellent in what we do and we know our business. We set clear goals, learn from our mistakes and continuously improve the way we work.
  • Teamwork
    We believe we are stronger together. Our way is to involve and motivate others in working together through challenges and projects. Together we work to find the best solutions for the company and our clients.
  • Partnership & Stakeholders
    We care about our clients, stakeholders and business partners. In a world of “sameness” and uniformity this gives us an edge. Our way is to build lasting relationships and we therefore cherish our day-to-day contacts.
  • Performance
    We believe in operational excellence, whilst keeping things simple and sober. Our culture is the foundation to learn from failures and mistakes, which is the key for our motivation for continuous process improvement.
