More than 70% of the earth’s surface consists of water. Although only a small proportion of the ocean has been explored, the ocean is integral to life on earth, playing a critical role in removing carbon from the atmosphere, providing us with oxygen and regulating our climate and weather patterns.
The ocean also presents immense opportunities for economic growth, employment and development. Spanning multiple sectors, including oil and gas, fishing, aquaculture, shipping, tourism, offshore wind energy, mining, and marine biotechnology, the ocean economy is growing rapidly.
However, the ocean and life within it faces intrinsic challenges as temperatures rise, sea levels rise and pollution increases, trends which in many cases are linked to population and economic growth.
DGR believes in a greener future for the ocean economy. Through our investments, we create engineering solutions and build maritime products which allow our customers to operate cleaner and greener vessels. We believe in continuous improvements, incremental and financially viable steps in existing operations which, over time, take our businesses, our customers and the industry closer to a sustainable future.
