The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) has just released its Dredging in Figures 2015, an annual review of the global dredging market.
The edition focuses on the global dredging industry in 2015 and IADC aims to be thorough and precise in the figures presented in this document.
The data of the closed markets could not be verified in its entirety and thus, the information has been restricted to the open markets, IADC said.
The statistics provided in the paper are based on information from public sources as well as from IADC member companies.
This paper highlights essential information about the dredging industry, which is divided into three sections – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that includes sustainability, emissions, safety; the drivers of the dredging industry; and the turnover in the open markets of the industry.
Through CSR activities companies aim to assume responsibility for their actions and toward the environment, consumers, employees, communities and stakeholders in general.
The CSR efforts of the major dredging companies include programs for sustainability, community involvement, fuel emissions reductions, in-house safety programs and extended education for employees.
