Ecological and sustainable

As a company with a rich tradition, our corporate culture is naturally founded upon sustainability, ecology and social responsibility. We feel a connection to our region and the environment, and we do everything we can to maintain a healthy balance between economic and environmental interests. We’re working with our customers and suppliers to develop environmentally friendly and energy-efficient technologies. For example, AIDAnova is the first cruise ship we built with an LNG drive system and the world’s first cruise ship featuring 100% LNG propulsion. MEYER WERFT is now one of the most environmentally friendly shipyards in Europe.

We set standards

As early as the mid-1990s, MEYER WERFT anchored environmental protection firmly within its corporate principles. We’ve taken a number of measures since then, such as the introduction of an energy management system that displays and resolves energy wastage and highlights potential savings. This has allowed us to significantly reduce energy consumption at our shipyard.
In addition, the solar installation at our large building dock generates renewable energy and reduces our CO2 emissions. We also have a sophisticated approach to waste prevention and recycling, and we promote sustainable logistics. We’ve made water conservation our top priority: Thanks to our Green Ship concept, we are reducing our emissions and increasing our energy efficiency for the protection of the environment.

Master Plan for the River Ems

MEYER WERFT is closely connected to the local region and the Ems. The river is the heart and soul of our shipbuilding company and other local residents. The river's protection is a top priority.
That’s why our shipyard has joined forces with various interest groups and endorses the 2050 Master Plan for the River Ems to determine the measures that have to be taken over the coming decades to protect the river.

The future in view

Our so-called "Papenburg model" will allow us to secure the jobs and welfare of all employees on the global market.
