Climate change and
energy efficiency

We recognise the risks that climate change poses to society and our business as well as the need to shift to a low carbon economy.

Climate change is the key environmental issue across the Maersk Group. Primarily due to the direct and indirect CO2 impacts related to running an oil business, as well as the significant levels of CO2 emitted by our fleet of more than 500 container ships. The Maersk Group has achieved an 17% improvement in CO2 efficiency since 2010, mainly driven by large improvements in our container business. Both our relative and absolute CO2 emissions decreased in 2013. The improvements are mainly due to Maersk Line's advancement in energy efficiency.

We support the position that adequate efforts must be made to limit global warming.
