For many of our material sustainability issues, our response is primarily determined by a recognition of responsibility as an employer, a business partner or active participant in local and global communities.

Here you can read more about the safety of our employees, human and labour rights, as well as issues of diversity and inclusion in our leadership.

Human rights

We work to ensure that we respect human rights in line with our values and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). We strive to integrate human rights risk management into existing business processes across our operations.


With safety, we all work towards a common goal

Diversity & inclusion

We are committed to providing positive, productive and supportive working environments where all employees are valued and inspired to be the best they can be. We will treat every employee with respect and dignity and that we will not tolerate discrimination of harassment of any kind.

Labour conditions

All Maersk employees are covered by a single set of labour principles designed to protect their rights and safety. These principles are informed by the International Labour Organization's fundamental conventions and are aligned with the UN Global Compact as well as the International Maritime Organization's labour convention.
