We are strongly committed to reducing the environmental footprint of our activities. This is reflected in the implementation of an Environmental Action Plan applied to ForSHORE’s maritime and port worksites.

This action plan targets 3 pillars:

ENERGY

Reduce our carbon footprint by 40% by 2030 by cutting our fuel and electricity consumption (scopes 1 and 2).

WASTE

Minimize our waste and maximize its recycling and recovery (destruction, storage, recycling).

CEMENT

Reduce our indirect CO2 emissions by 20% by 2030 (scope 3) by reducing our cement consumption, using less concrete and employing cements with a reduced carbon footprint and alternative binders.

ForSHORE also implements numerous measures to reduce the environmental impact of port infrastructure construction:

Biodiversity preservation

  • Conservation plans (Muelle IPM, Mexico)
  • Monitoring (Hong Kong airport)
  • Schedule adaptations (Port 2000 Le Havre, France)
  • Bubble curtains (Port-la-Nouvelle, France)

Water quality control

  • Suspended matter barriers (Port-la-Nouvelle, France)
  • Controls
  • Anti-pollution kits

Energy savings

  • Solar panels on barges (Brady Marine & Civil, Australia)
  • Modular generators
  • Eco-mode on machines
  • Equipment with electric power pack (Hydrofraise®)

Resource management

  • Alternative designs to reduce steel quantities (Puerto Bolivar, Ecuador)
  • Low-carbon concrete and grout (Port 2000 Le Havre, France)

Our low-carbon concretes

With EXEGY, ForSHORE offers a package of materials and services to provide the most suitable Low Carbon / Very Low Carbon / Ultra Low Carbon concrete and grout for each project. Our aim is to help you reduce the environmental footprint of your projects.
