Health, Safety & Environment
Louis Dreyfus Armateurs prides itself in conducting all its operations, both at sea and on-shore, under strict safety procedures.
Many improvements in safety at sea, now widely adopted, have been developed within Louis Dreyfus Armateurs fleet operations. Our group was a front-runner in ordering double-hull Capesize vessels and instrumental in having the Blue Charter adopted by the members of Armateurs de France as their commitment to safety and to the protection of the environment.
This charter is the first of its kind in the entire shipping world. It has been widely supported by famous and well-known environment protection associations, such as the foundation for Nature and Mankind.
We recognize that taking a leadership position on social and environmental issues is essential to creating a sustainable competitive advantage, and to delivering solutions aligned with our stakeholder’s expectations in the long term.

The entrepreneurial culture, the exciting missions and vision, our strong sense of innovation offer a challenging environment that attract the best talents in the industry to steer our way to success and deliver high value added solutions.
Securing a more sustainable economic growth
Corporate responsibility is always prioritized as a primary business objective in all LDPL’s ventures. We encompass our ability to address the challenges of designing efficient transport solutions, build durable trade solutions, and lead resources and energy supply in an environmentally friendly and responsible manner.
The economic development largely depends on port infrastructures and their ability to be efficiently connected to the world. We know full well that costly investments are only possible with a strong local economic growth. LD Ports & Logistics develops flexible, economic and innovative solutions where heavy investment would not be reasonable, thus breaking up this vicious circle.
The socioeconomic benefits of providing competitive resource export solution and affordable energy supply through innovations, fully integrates the environmental and social impact assessment into the life-cycle of the project, contributing to a better world.
