Environment

We engineer massive marine structures using mammoth machines, yet in everything we do we consider the impact to our planet. Harland and Wolff and our clients are committed to building a better world for our future generation.

Harland and Wolff take their environmental responsibilities very seriously and as such have developed an Environmental Policy that is harmonised to the Health, Safety and Quality management strategies.  The Environmental Policy is driven by the Chief Executive Officer and permeates through all levels of the organisation providing a robust yet flexible approach empowering all employees to make a positive contribution. The company’s environmental system has been accredited by DNV according to BS EN ISO 14001:2004. This award provides an external reference to validate the wide-ranging scope of the existing Environmental Policy.


Being an on-shore manufacturer in an off-shore product environment drives our commitment for the safeguard of land and marine ecological systems. Harland and Wolff works together with certification bodies, such as Northern Ireland Environmental Agency, and other enforcement bodies to ensure that regular inspections result in the latest accreditation. 

The key elements of our comprehensive Environment Policy are: - 

  • Zero tolerance of any activity that may be detrimental to the environment
  • Preventative maintenance and inspections that provide zero risk exposure
  • All inclusive procedures that identify, control and minimise any environmental risk
  • Work management plans
  • Waste management plans

The Environmental Policy covers all the business activities of Harland and Wolff. The Ship Repair business is supported by a Slops and Waste Disposal license and can provide an authorised ship decommissioning service. Harland and Wolff are good neighbours, continually striving to reduce noise and carbon pollutants. The site is proactive in reducing energy consumption and has a progressive recycling procedure.
