Sustainability at A.P. Moller - Maersk

Committed to net zero across our business by 2040.

Our approach to sustainable impact

Our approach to sustainability has evolved in step with our Global Integrator strategy – Maersk’s transformation from conglomerate to end-to-end logistics provider. As the scope of our business grows, we continually rethink and reframe our impact. As a result we are establishing a comprehensive ESG strategy as core to the purpose of our company.

Our ESG strategy is centred around three core commitments which encompass 14 ESG categories, where Maersk can deliver the greatest impact.

ESG strategy and governance 

Accountability and governance for each ESG category is strengthened by Maersk’s Executive Leadership Team. This includes the setting and renewing of strategic priorities and targets and ensuring these are operationalised throughout our organisation 

Informed by broad dialogue with our customers and other stakeholders, and driving transformation from the highest executive level, our Executive Leadership Team is responsible for ensuring our ESG actions are always relevant, ambitious, and impactful. 
Strategy governance

Engaging with our stakeholders

Our stakeholders expect us to act on the issues they care about. We engage with five key groups when defining our sustainability priorities: our customers, employees, investors, authorities and civil society actors. 

Experts across our organisation continually engage with these groups, incorporating their input and feedback in the identification of material issues that we will address as a company. 
Stakeholder engagement

Our policies and positions

Driving a sustainable transition in global trade is a core principle in everything we do. To guide us further, we have established policies and positions that describe how we act on specific issues, including decarbonisation, the environment, and engagement with trade associations.
