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

In line with Vopak's 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 & Digitalization

With the Platforms, Data & Digitalization 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.
