Strategy and governance
Our sustainability strategy supports our business strategy and contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Shared value areas and responsible business practices
We focus on four shared value areas where we through our business can develop large-scale solutions that alleviate some of our industry’s and the world’s major sustainability challenges, while at the same time supporting the development of our business. Furthermore, our efforts stand on a foundation of responsible business practices across all the issues that are most important to Maersk and our stakeholders.
We have since 2009 been a signatory to the UN Global Compact and remain committed to operating in congruence with the UNGC principles on responsible business conduct.
Sustainability governance at A.P. Moller - Maersk
Overall governance responsibility for sustainability resides with the Executive Board. Each of our sustainability strategy’s four shared value programmes are guided by a task force with executive level sponsorship and management level representatives from both line of business and sustainability expertise. The task forces are chaired and served by the sustainability department helping to drive and facilitate projects and collaborations. Governance on the responsible business practices issues resides with line management in our businesses.
