We are very pleased to introduce you to our first publication dedicated to sustainability. Aiming to share stories of insight, it puts into words our commitment to our people, customers, and the environment through safety, innovation and care. As part of the Maersk Group, we are signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary initiative to implement universal sustainability principles which we are proud to contribute towards.

Our commitment

Working in an industry that manufactures large, heavy containers in bulk quantities, we naturally face many challenges in our daily operations. In full acknowledgement, we are committed to the health and safety of our people and to working systematically towards viable, sustainable operations, products and services for our customers. The common denominator is our commitment to social responsibility: knowing our impacts on the society – positive and negative – and acting on them.

Our engagement

Sustainability is embedded in our business. To us, it means delivering innovative solutions for our customers, the environment, and ultimately for global trade. At all of our facilities, we aim to be responsible, caring for our people as well as the communities and environments we are part of. These are the fundamentals of how we conduct our business. We strive towards best practice and to be an industry leader in terms of adopting, promoting and exceeding legislative requirements, while respecting and complying with health, safety and environmental policies and procedures. Our products travel and serve the world and we, as a company, are also on a journey in which the ultimate destination is sustainable excellence through continuous improvement.


It is the vision of Maersk Container Industry to combine growth, profitability and sustainability by producing the most durable and energy-efficient containers on the market, while safeguarding the health and safety of our employees and minimising our environmental footprint.
