Acting responsibly We take pleasure in presenting our 2014 Sustainability Report, building on the success of the previous versions. This report covers 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 2014. The Sustainability Report details and evaluates our performance in brief, covering all those operational aspects and activities which could exercise either a positive or negative effect on the quality of our work, or on the health and safety of our employees, the environment or society at large. Figures for our quality, environmental and health & safety performance are presented in the graphics and figures throughout the report. As with previous reports, this update reflects our sincere commitment to openness and transparency about what we have achieved. To offer our stakeholders the most up-to-date and relevant information such as TMSA and MTMSA performance, it also includes a discussion on what we expect to deliver in 2015, with the aim of strengthening our market position and underlining our ‘one-stop-shop’ promise. We have done our utmost to produce an annual review covering all your concerns and areas of interest. But if you have any questions or comments, please contact our QHSE department by sending an e-mail to Arjan Donatz, Group Director QHSE

BMS Sustainability Report 2013

We have also implemented an integrated risk-based (compliance) management system in line with internationally-recognised standards, to manage our quality, health & safety and environmental performance. We have also set goals to deal with risks or liabilities involved in quality, the environment, health & safety and legal compliance, while internal operational procedures are dealt with appropriately and efficiently and are improved continuously wherever possible. For BMS, responsibility extends beyond simple compliance with laws and regulations on quality, the environment and health & safety, and the prevention and reduction of risks in general, and more specifically environmental and other incidents (zero spills), damage, injury and ill health (zero incidents) . BMS has put the individual, its clients and its community at its core, and has made sustainability a priority. Accordingly the company has joined widely-recognised programmes and collaborative sustainability efforts and/or has signed the relevant covenants. This lets us introduce new technologies contributing to reducing CO2 emissions and/or helping to address other challenges in the rapidly-changing markets where BMS operates or might operate in the future. The management of BMS has learned from experience that focusing on these issues can contribute to the optimisation, the reputation and the continuity of Burando Maritime Services. July 2014.

BMS Sustainability Report 2014


CEO’s Report Burando Maritime Services can look back on a good 2014. Despite the difficult market conditions, three companies even experienced their best financial year ever. The end of 2014 was very hectic after OW Bunkers’ bankruptcy, which occurred virtually overnight. Again Burando demonstrated its flexibility and creativeness, and all FTS/Hofftrans barges chartered to OW bunkers were under new contracts at the end of the year, minimising the negative impact. This flexibility was also demonstrated in the temporary relocation of the SSL offices, while their own premises were completely rebuilt. Customers were not affected at all, and ultimately SSL experienced a record year.We continue to expand our services and are constantly looking to improve our customer experience, as well as adding services to our portfolio. Some of the operational highlights of 2014: Burando Oil Logistics - Realisation and start-up of the new boiler house (Service Terminal Rotterdam) which will result in lower emissions; - In continuation of last year, the annual audit in accordance with the SEVESO regulations (BRZO) reported no major or minor issues at Service Terminal Rotterdam; - Roll-out implementation of the Occupational Health & Safety Management System at Service Terminal Rotterdam; - Successful implementation of MTMSA and TMSA at Service Terminal Rotterdam and FTS Hofftrans; no major or minor findings issued by oil major reviews and/or audits; - Four conversions of fuel-oil barges to gasoil barges of FTS Hofftrans, following customer needs.


BMS Sustainability Report 2013

Burando Maritime Logistics - Both STS and the local Rental divisions of Fendercare have experienced considerable growth and expansion, producing the significant figure of having transferred 6 million metric tons in the ARA region; - Ship Spares Logistics completed the final phase of the considerable upgrade to its logistics service centre in the Port of Rotterdam, begun in 2013; - Burando Rental Services signed a major contract with a large German energy company to design, build and operate two oil treatment units in the Middle East, to be operational in Q1-2016; - 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 and CSR reports, available at Burando Maritime Services continued to support the Florentina Foundation and the ALS Foundation in 2014, both financially and by participating actively in events. Ship Spares Logistics’ service centre in the heart of the Rotterdam Port took part in the ‘Harbour Obstacle Run’, with some 3,000 participants. To support our environmental focus, all Burando Maritime Services companies supported the 2014 ‘Earth Hour’. Burando also continued to support several local communities and sports clubs. Behaving responsibly towards society, our stakeholders and the environment has always been a central tenet of Burando’s philosophy, and we look forward to investing further in our community as our business continues to grow.

Our Achievements Delivering on our “one-stop-shop” promise. This section reports on our achievements in 2014, illustrating our growth and underlining our strategic vision. People Community involvement Burando recognises that it is an influential part of the communities in which it operates, with a responsibility towards them. So we make it a key aspect of our mission to be involved actively and positively in these communities. Burando and its individual employees have donated both time and money to numerous local and charitable initiatives. Burando has been supporting the Dutch ALS Foundation proactively since 2011/2012. ALS stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, an incurable nerve and muscle disease. During the course of this dreaded disease, all the body’s muscles fail progressively, until the heart itself stops. A typical sufferer 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 took part in the second annual Amsterdam City Swim. Teams from Burando’s affiliates joined more than 1,000 participants to take the plunge for ALS, swimming the Amstel river and Amsterdam’s canals to raise money for the cause. Burando is also committed actively 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 we played an active part in building a new multi-functional community house, also in Tanzania.

Labour practice As of December 2014, we employed 154 (+ 0%) people. Some 17% of our workforce is female, and around 17% of our employees work part-time. We also used the services of some 60 contracted staff either regularly or permanently. Collective health and pension agreements are available to all our employees.

Health & Safety So far our Health & Safety activities 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 SCC* certificates. At Service Terminal Rotterdam, in addition to the Process Safety Management System (BRZO’99), we enrolled in an Occupational Health & Safety Management system in accordance with OHSAS 18001:2007. Which will be subject to certification in early 2015.

“Investing in communities: Our commitment to society” Education, training and competencies Burando Maritime Services insists upon the competence of its employees. Accordingly, as a result of the roll-out of the implementation of TMSA, in 2014 FTS implemented a ‘Competence monitoring and improvement programme’, and other relevant subsidiaries in both BML and BOL have continued to focus on awareness and expansion of staff competences through training and brief instructions for both operators and (sub)contractors.

Sustainability and business assurance Business assurance All improvements will continue to focus on ensuring continuous and consistent Business Assurance for all processes and locations (fleet and ashore), while complying 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 performance, and in 2014 we achieved the implementation Level 2/3 of the best practices of the Tanker Management Self-Assessment (FTS Hofftrans) and Marine Terminal Management Self-Assessment for Service Terminal Rotterdam. Management System Certification Implementation of the integrated management system was maintained in 2014. All management system certificates (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and SCC*) were audited effectively by DNV·GL during the recertification audit in March 2014. No major issues were reported. SCC certificate (Safety Checklist Contractors) SSL (Cranebarge 2), Fendercare and BRS, all three employing 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.

Safety and Legal Compliance BMS devotes ongoing attention to preventing incidents and conforming to all legal requirements, and in 2014 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 everything 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 oversee compliance with all the legal, regulatory and other requirements applying to Burando Maritime Services and its activities. Regular inspections and tours of our premises are also conducted by our own staff, external auditors and regulatory officials to ensure full and proper compliance. In 2014 STR decided to enrol its risk-based compliance management system, supported by Panoptys (a compliance management tool), which will go live early in 2015. The nature of our activities at the Service Terminal Rotterdam (Torontostraat premises) means we are also required to comply with the current Seveso-II and future SEVESO III regulations, and with the International Ship and Port Facility Security code (ISPS). In 2014, 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 on our quality, environmental and health and safety performance within both BML and BOL are presented in the graph below and on various pages in this report.

EBIS and Green Award Along with our ISO 14001 management system, FTS Hofftrans has subscribed to the European Barge Inspection Scheme (EBIS). The entire FTS Hofftrans fleet continued to meet the requirements laid down by EBIS, and is subject to periodic inspections carried out both internally and by independent EBIS inspectors. As a reflection of our sustainability ambitions, FTS Hofftrans continued its 2012 commitment to the Green Award programme. So far the Luana, Zaria, Marilene, Isabella, Leonore, Ariana and Laurentien, all self-owned ships, are Green Awarded (FTS Hofftrans).

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 The (M)TMSA programme encourages operators to assess their safety management systems against listed requirements or key performance indicators, and provides best practice guidance. It can help to create opportunities for improvement in those areas relevant to operational excellence, and is an effective way to keep any nonconformities to a minimum. 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 2013. Since then FTS Hofftrans has been audited twice by oil majors in 2014. Both audit results were 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 18. The following graphs depict the operational highlights of the Service Terminal Rotterdam.

FTS Hofftrans Despite the turbulent market developments at the end of 2014, FTS successfully maintained its operations with double-hull barges; however it decreased the number of vessels by the end of 2014. It began implementing stages 1, 2 and (partly) 3 of the TMSA requirements for the entire fleet (own and charters included). Despite the current competitive market, today FTS Hofftrans still owns and operates nearly 20 such barges, the largest of which (Maxima) has a capacity of 6,745 mton and in total almost 73,000 mton. In 2014, FTS Hofftrans transported over 6,500,000 MT – slightly less than the previous year, although certainly sufficient to maintain its 50% market share in the Rotterdam port. For further details of the FTS Hofftrans fleet, see also

Trefoil Trading 2014 continued the success of the previous two business years. It continued to implement many improvements and received its ISO 14001 Management System certificate from DNG路GL in mid-2014. Again it almost doubled annual MGO supplies in actual barge deliveries and total volume, and expanded its service portfolio with more exclusive HFO and MGO supply contracts. After having contracting four dedicated vessels over the previous two years, it then contracted a couple more, strengthening the dedicated Trefoil fleet and making it more competitive. Its successful 2014 performance is depicted below:

Fendercare In 2014 Fendercare maintained and slightly increased its services, providing dedicated hoses for specific cargoes 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.

Burando Rental Services In 2014, Burando Rental Services continued its role as a service and solution provider to a range of maritime and industrial clients experiencing difficulties with liquid bulk cargoes. Thanks to its 24/7 availability and its team of qualified mechanics and field technicians, it was able to reduce client downtime significantly in cases of emergency breakdown, on-board pump failures and new system tests, producing a total of five significant projects.

Final words Accuracy and materiality Our systems let us 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-estimating these figures, we have added 10% to our calculated figures here. All measured and/or calculated non-financial data presented in this report is unaudited. Transparency Our 2014 Annual Report strives to provide a full and transparent picture of the company’s performance for the year. In drafting this 2014 Report, the following guidelines and standards have been considered. This has all been completed in accordance with the principles of transparency, and the use of EcoChain ( for calculating our carbon footprint. This report also provides relevant data in accordance with the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act (ADN). See Annex A.
