Mission & Vision
MISSION | Creating economic growth that implies sustainable employment.
VISION | Excelling in niche markets with water related activities.
The resulting strategy is based on two foundations and five pillars which should support continuity and sustainability.
First priority: safety, health and environment
Port Oostende plays a pioneering role in the Oostende port area in terms of the care for the health and safety of every employee and the care for the living environment. To support the continuous awareness and attention for Health and Safety a mascot was created, SAFE HENK, with the slogan "I am not a cowboy". The mascot was designed by the Oostende artist Herr Seele.
Supporting research and development
The use of fossil raw materials to move vehicles or vessels will hopefully decrease drastically soon. The scarcity of raw materials and the negative impact on people and the environment, make this urgent. Alternatives are available. Port Oostende supports the possibility of taking a real new step in technology and energy transition.
