We actively support societies and communities 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.

Contributing to humanitarian aid
Maersk has established a central donation facility through the Danish Red Cross to make it easier for employees to contribute financially to relief efforts and to enhance transparency and due diligence.
In 2023, Maersk employees donated over USD 79,000 through this facility to support earthquake victims in Türkiye and Syria, which the company matched.
Cleaning up during Go Green week
As part of the company’s annual Go Green week, coinciding with the World Ocean and Environment Days, employees in every region and 35+ countries participated in local clean-up activities (e.g., beaches, streets, natural reserves, etc.) and reforestation activities (e.g., tree plantings).
Corporate and local activities during the week engaged colleagues on environmental topics to raise awareness while connecting with families of our colleagues, communities, local stakeholders such as NGOs and schools, and customers.
