Sealake has been facilitating global trade flows for many years. To continue fulfilling that role, it is essential that we keep our company healthy and fit for the future. Our long-term success depends on our ability to innovate and respond to changing demands from both the market and society.

[we realize that sustainability is a dynamic concept. Sustainability is not defined in isolation. It is borne out of a continuous dialog with both external and internal stakeholders. A best practice today, may not be tomorrow. Our license to operate and license to grow depend on our ability to respond to changing demands from the market and society. Today, Sealake store energy and chemical products that are crucial to people’s lives, but can endanger their health and the environment if stored or handled inappropriately. As a service provider, we do not determine what type of products are in use. Our role and responsibility is to provide safe, efficient and clean liquid bulk storage and handling services. We abide by existing rules and regulations as a minimum and adopt best practices whenever possible. And we explore ways to facilitate the introduction of more sustainable technologies, processes and products. Our ambition is to be a strong link in our customers’ global value chains and a leader in our industry. We aim to achieve this by maximizing operational safety and minimizing our environmental footprint; by training our people, developing talent and sharing best practices and by encouraging and maintaining an open dialogue with our stakeholders, as a responsible member of the communities in which we operate.]
