UN Global Compact LEAD

UN Global Compact LEAD
We are working to implement the UN Global Compact's Blueprint for Corporate Sustainability Leadership.

In 2009, Maersk became a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and its ten principles that guide corporate behaviour in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. When the Global Compact LEAD was launched in 2011, we accepted an invitation to become one of 55 global corporations taking part in this platform for corporate sustainability leadership.

Today we are working to implement the body’s Blueprint for Corporate Sustainability Leadership. This Blueprint involves:

  • Implementing the ten UN Global Compact Principles into strategies and operations, including meeting the Global Compact’s 24 Advanced Level reporting criteria
  • Taking action in support of broader UN goals and issues
  • Engaging with the UN Global Compact

Advanced Level Criteria
The Advanced Level criteria are split into eight main sections:

  • Strategy governance and engagement
  • Goals and issues
  • Human rights implementation
  • Labour principles implementation
  • Environmental stewardship implementation
  • Anti-corruption implementation
  • Value chain implementation
  • Transparency and verification

A special place for safety
In addition to the Advanced Level criteria, we devote particular attention to safety, due to its central importance for all of our operations. We operate in very demanding environments that present high risks to our employees, so our standards for safety often exceed Global Compact requirements.
