Sinds GoodFuels is opgericht, heeft het bedrijf een one-stop-shop gecreëerd voor industriële klanten, door de gehele supply chain voor duurzame biobrandstoffen te integreren. Van grondstof tot tank: GoodFuels’ propositie strekt zich van de inkoop van grondstoffen, het waarborgen van de duurzaamheid, het mengen van het eindproduct, de wereldwijde distributie, kwaliteitszorg en marketing. GoodFuels is actief in twee verschillende markten: zee- en landtransport. Beide industrieën bevinden zich in een transitie naar duurzaam transport, maar met verschillende criteria voor de kwaliteit van de brandstof.
Als koploper in duurzame brandstoffen, speelt GoodFuels een actieve rol in de technologieontwikkeling en commercialisering van nieuwe duurzame brandstoffen.
Onze innovatie afdeling versnelt het toekomstige aanbod van duurzame brandstoffen, door nauw samen te werken met de industrie en onze onderzoekpartners. We zijn een kenniscentrum dat de link legt tussen de transport industrie en de technologieontwikkelaars, waardoor innovatie sneller hun weg naar de eindmarkt vinden.
Duurzaamheid is van essentieel belang voor GoodFuels. Daarom hebben we onze eigen onafhankelijke Sustainability Board opgericht, bestaande uit vooraanstaande NGO’s en academici welke toezicht houden op de duurzaamheid van de producten die wij leveren.
Eenheid in diversiteit – mogelijk gemaakt door onze GoodFuels-waarden
Bij GoodFuels geloven we erin dat een sterk team uit diverse mensen bestaat. Een team bestaat uit aanvallers, middenvelders en verdedigers. We streven naar een team dat intelligent is, maar ook van aanpakken houdt en wil winnen van de competitie. Een team dat altijd doorleert door gewoon te doen. Waar fouten mogen worden gemaakt, zolang je er maar van leert. Een team dat de energie van millenials combineert met de grijze haren met expertise en ervaring. Een team dat bestaat uit zo veel mogelijk verschillende mannen, vrouwen, nationaliteiten, talen, religies, seksuele oriëntaties en politieke overtuigingen als mogelijk. Maar een team dat bovenal samenkomt in hun waarden. Wij geloven dat dit is hoe wij van dag tot dag onze doelen en idealen willen nastreven voor ons bedrijf, onze zakenrelaties en onze nieuwe aanwas.
- We zijn gepassioneerd over het verminderen van CO2-uitstoot in de wereld
- We zijn agile en responsief, we zetten dat stapje extra
- We spelen het eerlijk, echt duurzaam en recht door zee
- We kunnen het alleen maar samen doen
- We ontwikkelen lange termijn relaties
- We maken ons werk leuk en inspirerend – voor onszelf en voor elkaar
