In today’s fast-paced world, companies that want to lead have to innovate. At Maersk, we invest heavily in innovation at all levels of our organisation.

Leading through innovation

For us, innovation is a highly focused discipline that aims to deliver better service, protect our employees and the environment, create new business opportunities and ensure cost-effectiveness.

It’s a fundamental mindset throughout our organization, and it drives us to engage with the sharpest minds we can find at universities and research institutes around the globe.

To name just one current example of how we innovate, Maersk Oil’s TriGen power generator is a technology derived from the space industry. About the size of a shipping container, TriGen burns gas with pure oxygen to produce clean power, pure water and reservoir ready carbon dioxide, which is captured and used to enhance recovey work at oil and gas fields. Because the CO2 is captured, the power produced is emissions-free.
