As a global company, we are present in over 120 countries, and we recognise that we play an important role in the communities where we operate. We create jobs, improve infrastructure and facilitate the flow of domestic and international trade. We also have a long tradition of contributing to local communities, and we support many causes where our unique skills and assets as a global company can make a real difference.

Our priority causes

To ensure that the impact of our social investments is maximised, we prioritise causes and projects that support the global nature of our business and our desire to create opportunities for global commerce and local communities.

We have identified five priority causes for donations:

  1. Disaster relief & preparedness

    We give priority to projects that help alleviate the impact of natural disasters and increase access to essential goods and services for the communities affected.

  2. Empowering for trade

    We give priority to projects that help develop new social and economic opportunities for underprivileged communities through removing trade barriers and providing access to global value chains.

  3. Protect natural environment & oceans

    We give priority to projects that aid in protecting the health and well-being of the environment and natural resource base on which we, our customers and local communities depend.

  4. Support education & trainings

    We give priority to projects that promote education and knowledge building, which are vital instruments to promote livelihoods and the potential for long-term success in society. Priority will be given to areas aligned with our industry such as shipping, transport and logistics, safety, and educational programmes that promote the English language, maths, and career skills.

  5. Promote health & safety

    We give priority to projects that support safety and health in the living environment for the broader benefit of local communities.

Who we support

We support projects that involve reputable third-party organisations or non-government organisations and our key customers. We only consider donations for individuals in exceptional circumstances or when the individual is associated with a reputable third-party organisation.

Who we do not support

All our donation decisions take into account our reputation and values. We do not support initiatives, projects or groups that we believe do not match our values or live up to our company policies.
