Acting responsibly Following on from the success of our previous Sustainability Reports, we are now pleased to present our Sustainability Report 2013 with new layout. This Report considers Burando Maritime Services (Burando), which comprises Burando Maritime Logistics (BML) and Burando Oil Logistics (BOL), and their subsidiaries that were operational for more than one full month in 2013. Our Sustainability Report details and evaluates our performance in brief, in all those operational aspects and activities that have the potential to affect – whether positively or negatively – the quality of our work, the health & safety of our employees, the environment, or society at large. Figures concerning our quality, environmental and health and safety performances are presented in the graphics and figures at the foot of various pages in this report. This Sustainability update reflects our sincere commitment to openness and transparency about what we have achieved. In the interests of offering our stakeholders the most up-to-date and relevant information, this report also includes a discussion of our expected deliverables for 2014, all of which aim to strengthen our market position and underline our “one-stop-shop” promise. We have done our utmost to produce an annual review that covers all of your concerns and areas of interest.

BMS Sustainability Report 2013

BMS is aware of the impact it can have on its surroundings and its stakeholders, in terms of safety and the environment as well as image. In order to control this impact as much as possible, we have implemented a risk based management system in line with internationally recognised standards. At the same time, we have set goals to ensure that risks or liabilities in the area of quality, the environment and safety, as well as internal operational procedures, are dealt with appropriately and efficiently and that they are continuously improved wherever possible. BMS considers that its responsibility goes beyond simple compliance with laws and regulations concerning the environment, safety and the reduction and prevention of (environmental) incidents (zero spills), damage, injury and ill health (zero incidents). BMS has made the individual, its clients and its community a central concern – but sustainability is also a priority. The company has therefore joined widely recognised programmes and collaborative sustainability efforts and/or signed relevant covenants. This enables us to introduce new technologies that contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and/or which help address other challenges in the quickly changing markets where BMS is – or will be – active. The management of BMS has learned from experience that a focus on these issues can contribute to the optimisation, the reputation and the continuity of Burando Maritime Services. September 2013

CEO’s Report Burando Maritime Services continued its 2012 success throughout 2013. Despite

Burando Maritime Logistics

declining port activities in general, eg fewer vessels calling into ports, Burando Maritime


Burando’s 25% shareholding in Nature Group (listed on the London Stock Exchange) remained the largest single shareholder in the company. Nature Group is not included in this report; it has its own annual report and CSR report, which are available at


Ship Spares Logistics (SSL) had another record year in 2013. Along with many maritime projects, we also saw a huge increase in offshore-related projects. The company has started a huge upgrade of its facilities in 2013 which will be completed in July 2014. After this upgrade, SSL will be even better placed to serve its growing number of customers.


Burando Customs Services (BCS) further increased its customer base, ensuring that over €700 million of oil trades were carried out without any customs problems. Its Buncare programme saw another two customers choosing its unique customs system for the bunker supply market.

Services had a record year. Both its Oil Logistics companies, Trefoil and Service Terminal Rotterdam (STR), generated the highest revenue and profit ever, along with its Maritime Logistics companies Ship Spares Logistics (SSL), Burando Rental Services (BRS), Fendercare and Burando Customs Services (BCS). Burando’s ability to deliver (and often over-deliver) on its promises is being recognised and rewarded by its customers, who will frequently have been customers for many years and grown their own activities along with Burando’s support. Burando’s determination to be market leader in the areas in which it delivers services is paying off. We continue to expand our services and are continually looking to improve our customer experience, as well as adding services to our portfolio. Some of the operational highlights: Burando Oil Logistics -

Fuel Transport Services (FTS) started to operate in the port of Hamburg in 2012, which was well received and resulted in a second barge starting to operate in 2013 in Ham burg. The overall bunker market in 2013 showed a decline in volume, but FTS was able to maintain its volume.


Service Terminal Rotterdam (STR), after completing its expansion to 240,000M3 in April 2012, had its first full year operation in 2013, which resulted in the best year ever with the highest throughput of fuel oil ever.


Trefoil supplied over 380,000M3 of Gasoil in the Port of Rotterdam, a huge increase compared to previous years.

As a result of Burando Oil Logistics’ continued growth in the past three years, we were awarded with the well-known “Gazelle Award”, coming first for the South-West region and second for the whole country. 22

BMS Sustainability Report 2013

- Burando Rental Services (BRS) had a record year due to two long-term rental projects and many ad-hoc rental projects for the maritime as well as the offshore market. BRS expects to have its unique hose cleaning system certified in 2014. - Fendercare Benelux continued its strong performance of the last quarter in 2012 throughout 2013. With our services we supported over 6 million tons of ship-to-ship cargo transfer in the ARA region. Burando Maritime Services expanded its support to the Florentina Foundation by signing a three-year sponsorship contract in 2013. With this contract, the Tanzania-based Elisabeth Centre will have “peace of mind” to ensure it will be self-supporting in 2016, educating over 350 children annually. Along with this financial contribution, another team of Burando employees have spent a week in Tanzania to support the Elisabeth Centre in building new facilities. BMS Sustainability Report 2013


We don’t think it is due to Burando’s support, but the growing awareness of the disease ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is in line with Burando’s overall growth. More and more people know what ALS stands for, and it is heart-warming that within Burando many of our employees are supporting the ALS foundation by either swimming, bicycling, running or racing to generate funds for, amongst others, Project Mine. This project was initiated by Burando’s co-founder, Bernard Muller, and will result in the analysis of 22,500 DNA samples in a groundbreaking search for a cure for ALS (Project Mine, Make it Yours! In addition, Burando continued to support several local communities and sporting clubs. For Burando, behaving responsibly towards society, our stakeholders and the environment has always been a central tenet of our philosophy, and we look forward to investing further in our community as our business continues to grow.

Our Achievements

“Investing in communities: Our commitment to society”

Delivering on our “one-stop-shop” promise. This section reports on our achievements in 2013, illustrating our growth and underlining our strategic vision. Labour practice People Community involvement Burando recognises that it is an influential part of, and has a responsibility towards, the communities in which it operates. As a consequence, we make it a key aspect of our mission to be actively and positively involved in these communities. Burando and individual employees have donated both time and money to numerous types of local and charitable initiatives. Since 2011/2012, Burando have been proactively supporting the Dutch ALS Foundation. ALS stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, an incurable nerve and muscle disease. During the course of this dreadful disease, all of the muscles in the body progressively fail, until the heart itself stops. An average patient has only three years to live after being diagnosed with ALS. To support the work of the Dutch ALS Foundation, which provides assistance to ALS sufferers and strives to increase public understanding of the disease, Burando participated in the second annual Amsterdam City Swim. Teams representing Burando’s affiliates joined over 1,000 participants in taking the plunge for ALS, swimming the Amstel river and the canals of Amsterdam city to raise money for the cause. Burando is also actively committed to broader social initiatives. Following our initial sponsorship in 2012, we continued sponsoring the Florentina Foundation in their bid to support an education centre for local Masai children in Kolila Village, Tanzania, and actively participated in building a new multi-functional community house, also in Tanzania. For further information see 28

BMS Sustainability Report 2013

As of December 2013, we employed 154 (+ 38%) people. Approximately 10.5% of our workforce is female, and approximately 10% of our employees work part-time. In addition, we made use of the services of some 120-150 contracted staff on a regular and/or permanent basis. Collective health and pension agreements are available to all our employees. Health & Safety Our Health & Safety activities to date include creating a single centralised safety, health and welfare service for all Burando Maritime Services subsidiaries, enabling employees to undergo preventive medical tests and facilitating participation in company-supported fitness programmes. To underline the importance of health and safety, three of our affiliates hold a SCC* certificate. At FTS Hofftrans we enrolled in accordance with ADN 1.3 on-board first aid, emergency response and security-related training and refresher courses (where applicable). In addition, we have increased the number of fire training/emergency response drills at our facility at the Torontostraat (Service Terminal Rotterdam, Fendercare and Burando Rental Services). Education, training and competencies Burando Maritime Services insists upon competency of their employees. In 2013, therefore, FTS started, as a result of the roll-out of the implementation of TMSA, a “competence monitoring and improvement programme”, and other relevant subsidiaries in both BML and BOL have continued the focus on awareness and expansion of staff competencies through training by use of what we refer to as nano sessions (brief instructions to operators) and dedicated courses.

Sustainability and Business Assurance

Burando Maritime Services – Management System Certification


ISO 9001

- Our ISO 9001 and 14001 management system retained certification by our external Certification Body (BVQI). Two of our entities (Fendercare and SSL) are also certified in accordance with the Safety, Health and Environmental Checklist Contractors (SCC). These certifications emphasise our commitment to the welfare of our people, customers and community.


- The annual ISPS compliance inspections conducted periodically by the authorised body reported no major or minor ISPS compliance issues.

Safety and Legal Compliance

Business assurance All improvements will remain focused, however, on ensuring continuous and consistent Business Assurance for all processes and locations (fleet and ashore), together with compliance with all requirements laid down in internationally-recognised standards. The system is defined by strong legal compliance, risk management, and group policies and guidelines. This also applies to our commitment to corporate sustainability. In early 2013 it was decided to strengthen and further improve both FTS Hofftrans and STR’s operational and QHSE performances, and initiatives were taken to adopt the best practices of the Tanker Management Self-Assessment and Marine Terminal Management Self-Assessment. A GAP analysis was made Q1-2013 to feed the implementation phase, started Q4-2013. Management System Certification The implementation of the integrated management system (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 andSCC*), however, were effectively audited by Bureau Veritas. In 2014 the re-certification will take place, which has been granted to DNV GL. SCC certificate (Safety Checklist Contractors) SSL and BRS, both of which employ a multitude of diverse sub-contractors in safety-critical industrial sectors, implemented all the necessary policies, procedures and work instructions many years ago, and have been fully SCC-certified ever since. 30

ISO 14001 ISPS

BRZO Inspection


BMS gives continuous attention to preventing incidents and conforming to all legal requirements, and in 2013 we maintained our excellent (zero nonconformities) major hazard control performance and legal compliance. Any near misses and all incidents are registered, investigated and documented, and we are very serious about learning all we can from such events. Legal framework Both Service Terminal Rotterdam (STR) and Ship Spares Logistics (SSL) hold up-to-date environmental permits (or notification duty). Our comprehensive integrated management system is in place to manage and to oversee compliance with all of the legal, regulatory and other requirements that apply to Burando Maritime Services and our activities. Regular inspections and tours of our premises are also conducted by our own staff, external auditors and regulatory officials in order to ensure full and proper compliance. Due to the nature of our activities at the Service Terminal Rotterdam (Torontostraat premises), we are also required to comply with Seveso-II regulations and the International Ship and Port Facility Security code (ISPS). In 2013, extensive dedicated Tank Terminal inspections, vetting audits and external ISO audits reported only observations and limited minor nonconformities as needing improvement. No major findings were issued. Figures concerning our quality, environmental and health and safety performances within both BML and BOL are presented in the graphics and figures at the foot of various pages in this report.

Operations Burando Oil Logistics Marine Terminal Management Self-Assessment and Tanker Management Self-Assessment The (M)TMSA programme encourages operators to assess their safety management systems against listed requirements/key performance indicators, and provides best practice guidance. It can help to create opportunities for improvement in those areas which are relevant for operational excellence, and is an effective way to minimise the recurrence of nonconformities. Both Service Terminal Rotterdam and FTS Hofftrans decided to use this programme to assess the effectiveness of their management systems for berth operations, ship/shore interface and vessel operations. The first assessments (GAP analyses) for both STR and FTS Hofftrans were conducted in Q1-2013. In mid-2013 the performance of Service Terminal Rotterdam was the subject of a first external assessment (vetting audit) and rated as “satisfactory�.

Service Terminal Rotterdam STR’s onshore heavy-fuel storage activities (which began in mid-2005) improved their steady and constant rate, as demonstrated by an increased throughput/terminal ratio of approximately 21. In the following graphs you will find the operational highlights of the Service Terminal Rotterdam.

FTS Hofftrans In 2013 we successfully maintained our operations with double-hull barges. We started to implement the stage 1 and 2 TMSA requirements for the whole fleet (own and charters included). Despite the competitive market we are in, today FTS Hofftrans owns and operates almost 20 such barges, the largest of which (Maxima) has a capacity of 6,745 mton and in total almost 73,000 mton. In 2013, FTS Hofftrans transported over 8,500,000 MT in total, maintaining our market share of 50% in the Rotterdam harbour. For further details of the FTS Hofftrans fleet, see also

Trefoil Trading In line with 2012, 2013 was also a dynamic year. We continued to implement many improvements. We doubled again the annual MGO supplies in actual barge deliveries and total volume, and expanded our service portfolio with more exclusive HFO and MGO supply contracts. After contracting the Laurentien in 2011 and the Isabella in 2012, now the Marilene and Amalia also service the dedicated Trefoil fleet. In 2013 we successfully performed as presented below.

providing solutions for customs handling and specific logistical, administrative and fiscal issues. Besides clearing customs, we also supported clients with innovative concepts for customs licensing and complex logistical issues. In 2013, we further increased our number of services.

Fendercare In 2013 Fendercare maintained and slightly increased their services to provide dedicated hoses for specific cargos anywhere, at any time. The cargo hose cleaning methods implemented two years ago are still fundamental to meeting and maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety.

Ship Spares logistics Along with the ongoing growth of the services, in 2013 SSL received almost 38,000 inward shipments. SSL also achieved some logistics improvements, eg new pavement and guardrails, 3 x 10 ton storage containers to emphasise hazardous contents as per PGS15 legislation, and also improved waste management, disposing of waste in an environmentally-friendly manner.

In 2013, Burando Rental Services continued its role as service and solution provider to a range of maritime and industrial clients experiencing difficulties with liquid bulk cargoes. Thanks to our 24/7 availability and our team of qualified mechanics and field technicians, we were able to significantly reduce our clients’ downtime in cases of emergency breakdown, on-board pump failures and new system tests, which resulted in 13 projects in total.

Final words Accuracy and materiality Our systems allow us to measure and monitor many aspects of our operational performance in detail. Where such measurements are not yet possible, we have used recognised, publicly-available conversion factors for presenting data calculations. Conversion factors have been used to calculate our carbon footprint, our electricity, water and paper consumption, and the waste produced in our offices. To avoid under-estimation of these figures, we have, on this occasion, added 10% to our calculated figures. All measured and/or calculated non-financial data presented in this report are unaudited. Transparency Our Sustainability Report 2013 aims to provide a full and transparent picture of the company’s performance for the year. In drafting this 2013 Report, the following guidelines and standards have been considered. This has all been completed in accordance with the principles of transparency: -

GRI Sustainable Reporting guidelines


Greenhouse Gases Protocol


EcoChain ( for calculating our carbon footprint. EcoChain’s calculations are based on Defra/DECC’s guidelines and greenhouse gas conversion factors for company reporting

Accidents/Incidents Accidents, incidents and near-misses are registered in the ‘Incident monitor’ (see Appendix 1). In 2013, no personal accidents or environment incidents occurred.

BMS Sustainability Report 2013


E. Training courses A large number of crew members took part in an ADN 1.3 training course / captain’s meeting on 19 April or 26 April 2013, which focused on the following subjects: -

(Modifications) ADN 2013 Audits and inspections Procedures and instructions Near misses and incidents Personal protective equipment. First Aid course (practical session)

The personal certificates of attendance are available, if required. On 14 ships, a local ADN 1.3 training course and First Aid course were organised for all the crew members that were on board at that time. A number of crew members followed ADN basic, ADN chemicals or ADN refresher courses. Every ship has at least one expert as specified in ADN 8.2. F. Ship’s visits and inspections. In 2013, Transafe conducted 48 audits / inspections, distributed over 27 ships. The aim was to implement 2 audits / inspections every year for each ship (see Appendix 2 for an overview). In addition, a number of inspections were conducted by third parties, including official bodies. These inspections gave no cause for the transport activities to be suspended or terminated.

This software will enable FTS Hofftrans to effectively manage and monitor the following: I. Risk Inventory & Evaluation (RI&E) In 2013, FTS Hofftrans had its RI&E for its fleet updated in accordance with the CBRB method and then had it tested by a (certified) Health and Safety Executive.
