Mammoet statement on Ukraine/Russia
Dutch international heavy lift and haulage contractor Mammoet has frozen all new work and investment in Russia and issued a statement regarding its activities in the region. It operates from two locations in the Russia - Mammoet Rus with an office in Moscow and Mammoet Sakhalin in the far south east of the country, near Japan.
The statement said:
“During the past days, SHV, Mammoet's parent company, has followed the tragic events in Ukraine with sadness and disbelief. Our deepest sympathy goes out to all the people and families seeking safety, shelter and peace following the violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine by Russia.
In line with the SHV Purpose, our first priority is the well being of our over 1,100 employees and their families in the region. Our teams are working around the clock to help secure their safety, using all the resources that are available. We will keep all our employees in mind throughout the region as we navigate through this crisis.
For now, no new investments, no new projects and no new exports to Russia will be undertaken. Simultaneously we asses our current and future obligations on a continuous basis as the situation evolves. We fully adhere to the sanctions, both in spirit and in law and make sure we stay compliant in what we do.
In support of international efforts, we contribute to this humanitarian crisis in a practical way. For example, our colleagues from Gaspol, our Polish activities from SHV Energy, are providing gas bottles for heating to the shelters of refugees.”
