Vopak Ventures - A future mindset

We work with a future mindset, as we are always ready for potential developments and changes.

Vopak's commitment is to store vital products with care, this helps to meet the needs of a growing population. These needs include providing access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy, and facilitating the introduction of cleaner, low-carbon energy and feedstocks; improving air quality; and contributing to a safe and healthy work environment for our employees and contractors.

In line with these ambitions, we have set up Vopak Ventures to identify investment opportunities in start-ups and scale-ups in new technologies and emerging value chains. In this, we focus on three areas:

New Energies, Feedstocks & Sustainability

With the New Energies, Feedstocks & Sustainability fund, we focus on funding ventures facilitating new sustainable solutions in areas such as zero emission fuels, green feedstocks, recycling solutions and flow batteries etc.

Operational Excellence & Asset Management

With the Operational Excellence & Asset Management fund, we look into funding ventures close to our terminal operations who could work with us in continuously striving to make our activities more efficient, effective and as safe as possible.

Platforms, Data & Digital

With the Platforms, Data & Digital fund, we identify opportunities of funding on ventures that employ data and new digital technologies in efforts to improve our service towards customers, while improving and supporting operations and reducing the environmental footprint.
