Sustainability at A.P. Moller - Maersk

A comprehensive ESG strategy with a commitment to reach net zero across our business by 2040.

Integrating the world for a sustainable future

By connecting and simplifying global trade, we empower our customers and broader society to create value, grow and thrive. But we only succeed when this growth is decoupled from negative impacts on individuals, communities and the planet and resources we all share.

Our vision to become the Global Integrator demands that we accelerate the transition to decarbonise global supply chains and enable sustainable trade for our growing world. Our transformation strategy is founded on our core values and a singular conviction: that a safer, fairer and greener future is within our reach.

In 2023, we worked closely with our customers, stakeholders and partners to deliver concrete progress on our ESG commitments. We see Maersk’s commitment to sustainable, inclusive trade as a differentiator and essential to the way we create value as a company. It is also core to our long held values and purpose: Improving life for all by integrating the world.

ESG strategy and governance

Maersk’s ESG strategy charts an ambitious course and establishes ESG as core to our purpose, critical to the success of our business strategy, and a differentiator in the value we create for our customers.

The strategy encompasses our material sustainability impacts, risks and opportunities for Maersk and is centred around three core commitments, each with supporting strategic KPIs and targets. These commitments represent issues where Maersk’s position, scale and reach can create the most significant impact, which in turn define our ambition level – whether we want to be good, excellent or an industry leader in specific ESG topics.
