At A.P. Moller - Maersk we have a distinctive set of Core Values which drive the way we do business. These five corporate values were ingrained into our operations by our founders, the Møller family, and have remained guiding principles, governing the development of A.P. Moller - Maersk for over a century.


Constant Care

Take care of today, actively prepare for tomorrow. What it means as a core value: Forward thinking, planning and execution. Being informed, innovative and seeking out new ideas. Looking for changes in the environment.


Listen, learn, share, and give space to others. What it means as a core value: Showing trust and giving empowerment. Having an attitude of continuous learning. Never underestimating our competitors or other stakeholders.


Our word is our bond. What it means as a core value: Honesty and accountability. Openness about the good and the bad. Speaking your mind in the debate, but backing the decision.

Our Employees

The right environment for the right people. What it means as a core value: Attracting and retaining the right people, building the right team. Providing opportunities for continual development. Rewarding performance, promoting for potential.

Our Name

The sum of our Values: passionately striving higher. What it means as a core value: The embodiment of our values. Passion and pride for what we do and how we do it. Our image in the eyes of our customers and the external world.

"The basic principle is that people can trust us."
