Our policies and positions
We commit to clarity and consistency on our policies and positions. They guide our work to drive a sustainable transition in global trade and ensure that we live up to the highest ethical standards.
Our word is our bond
Maersk operates in more than 130 countries and has a significant presence in many key locations. This means we also have a role to play in the development of local and international policies and regulations.
“The basic principle is that people can trust us. Your word should be your bond.” – Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller
In all public policy outreach and governmental relations, we apply this principle, based on our Core Values: Constant Care, Humbleness, Uprightness, Our Employees and Our Name. The values have lived in Maersk since 1904, emanating from the founding family. View Mr. Møller’s statement and read more about our Core Values here.
Building on our Core Values, and in recognition of the global climate emergency, Maersk is committed to ensuring that all lobbying activities are conducted in accordance with our commitment to responsible business practices and with the planet and its inhabitants in mind. For all of our climate policy outreach this means it is conducted in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
