Our purpose

Our story is about people with the courage to care for what we do. How we do it. And the impact this has on others, on performance, and on the planet. Always looking ahead. Always moving forwards.

The courage to care means a promise to shape the future, not simply adapt to it. For everyone at SHV, every day provides the inspiration to create a better tomorrow for generations to come.

Courage to care for generations to come

SHV has had a long history and an entrepreneurial spirit has been present from the start. SHV and its Groups aim to fulfill the needs of tomorrow by doing good today. By doing business in a responsible way and by finding the right balance between result, tradition, sustainability and innovation.
