"As a world-class carrier, we play a key role, together with industry partners, in developing a better world for future generations." Diego Aponte, President and CEO
In recent years, the world has taken a more progressive stance on matters relating to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR); As the world's second largest container shipping line, MSC believes that the development of CSR policies and best practice is imperative for the future health of our planet, its people - as well as our business.
We recognise the world's oceans are precious and must be protected from pollution. That is why MSC is committed to the development of positive ethical and environmental change within our company.
At MSC we are addressing all areas of CSR development including:
Embedding our global employee and supplier code of conduct,
Investment in people and our local communities.
Of particular focus is MSC's impact on the environment. Although container shipping is the most carbon-friendly means of global trade, we recognize that our vessels each have a significant carbon footprint. We have already started on a significant programme to reduce these harmful emissions through the implementation of improved hull design, engine innovation and best practice maintenance. We are also working continuously to reduce the risks associated with transporting dangerous cargo.
To ensure the proper and effective management of this important initiative, MSC relies on a CSR Team. These experts lead a team of professionals across the globe to develop and deliver our ever-more ambitious CSR agenda.
As a world-class carrier, we play a key role, together with industry partners, to develop a better world for future generations.
