Sustainability at A.P. Moller - Maersk

A comprehensive ESG strategy with a commitment to reach net zero across our business by 2040.

Integrating the world for a sustainable future

By connecting and simplifying global trade, we empower our customers and broader society to share value, grow and thrive. But we only succeed when this growth is decoupled from negative impacts on individuals, communities and the planet and resources we all share.

Our vision to become the Global Integrator demands that we accelerate the transition to decarbonise global supply chains and enable sustainable trade for our growing world. Our transformation strategy is founded on our core values and a singular conviction: that a safer, fairer and greener future is within our reach.

In 2022, we accelerated our decarbonisation targets and made significant progress towards delivering on our ESG commitments. Fulfilling our ESG goals is extremely important to our customers, making our efforts a competitive differentiator and essential to our value proposition. Acting on our ESG strategy is also core to our longheld values and our newly articulated company purpose: Improving life for all by integrating the world.
