We actively support the societies and ecosystems where we operate. This responsibility is grounded in our Core Values and expected by our key stakeholders.
Why citizenship matters
Logistics services play a vital role in many crisis situations. From environmental clean-ups and natural disasters to food shortages and humanitarian emergencies, logistics is the means to get help where it is needed.
But the most urgent challenges demand concerted action. That’s why we partner with civil society actors, our industry peers, academia, local authorities and communities to build capacity, prepare emergency responses and support action on the ground.
We engage in global partnerships that leverage Maersk assets and skills to make an impact in prioritised areas aligned with our business and sustainability goals. We support local communities and partners with donations and social investments in accordance with our corporate guidelines.

Helping those most in need
The Russian invasion of Ukraine created an acute need for humanitarian aid. As a member of the Logistics Emergency Team, Maersk supported humanitarian relief efforts with large-scale in-kind logistics assistance provided by a dedicated team of 40 Maersk specialists.
Partnering with the WFP, UN, and the UNHCR, we established a major aid warehouse and worked with authorities to coordinate a stable flow of relief supplies into Ukraine.
Supporting action on ocean plastic
Maersk has partnered with The Ocean Cleanup since 2018, providing offshore and logistics support for the organisation’s cleanup systems in oceans and major rivers.
By the end of 2022, System 002 in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch had harvested nearly 200,000 kilograms of plastic waste from the ocean.
