Tax principles

Our commitment to the B Team Responsible Tax Principles

During 2017, A.P. Moller - Maersk participated in a working group convened by the B Team, an international not-forprofit initiative, to develop a set of principles for responsible tax management.

The working group, consisting of tax professionals from leading multinational companies, has developed a set of ambitious yet practical principles that define what we mean by responsible tax. They cover a company’s basic approach to tax, its engagement with authorities and others regarding tax affairs, and its reporting to stakeholders. The principles were developed in consultation with representatives from international civil society organisations that work on responsible tax issues.

We appreciate the leadership and support by the B Team in this process. The B Team Responsible Tax Principles were launched early in 2018, and as a founding signatory, A.P. Moller - Maersk is pleased to endorse the principles.

We are committed to following the principles and to sharing our experiences with other companies and stakeholders.

The B Team Responsible Tax Principles are available via the B Team website.
