Corporate Social Responsibility
CSR is at the heart of our organization. Aqua Vision’s core business is to offer products and solutions for the benefit of society, environment and our employees. Our main activities are directly linked to water management, to the development of estuaries and harbours, the protection against flood and to the preservation of eco-systems. Contributing to a sustainable future forms the core of our mission. We are proud of this and would like to promote the importance of our work in the coming years.
We strive to achieve a balance between the three Ps: People, Planet and Profit. It is a combination of striving to achieve good economic results with added value for society, the environment and our employees. By measuring our performance, we will be in a better position in the near future to monitor our progress more effectively and compare this progress with our objectives.

As entrepreneurs, we take responsibility through our operational activities and promote “carbon awareness”. In the last 5 years, the CO2 emission of our operational activities has been calculated (as described in www.CO2emissiefactoren.nl). The CO2-emission of Aqua Vision BV in 2019 was equal to 2,3 tons/fte. The distribution is shown in the figure below.
Due to our CSR policy, the CO2 emission has been largely reduced (more than 30% over the past 2 years!) compared to our reference year 2015. This is depicted in the Table below. A good example how our sustainable design principles contributes to this is our innovative design of field measurements. In a substantial part of our projects, we have replaced the fossil fuel consuming vessels by radiographic electrical Q boats. Our aim is to reduce our environmental impact even more in the coming years.
