Our Sustainability Strategy

In 2014, we introduced a new sustainability strategy aimed at addressing significant sustainability challenges in a way that creates value for society and Maersk. We have identified three key priority areas where focusing our efforts will help us unlock growth. At the same time, we will continue to integrate sustainability in our operations, mitigating risks and raising performance levels.
