Our approach incorporates the Sustainable Development Goals into our business strategies and across our operations, guided by the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
We recognise the pivotal role we play in connecting the world, and our strong core values and long-term view drive our commitment to playing our part in creating a sustainable future. We take pride in acting responsibly, collaborating with others in search of solutions to address the global challenges of today and those that will impact our business in the years and decades to come.
As a global company with a clear purpose, MSC has a responsibility to help build a future where supply chains are both resilient and sustainable. We seek to act as a catalyst in accelerating the net-zero transition and contribute to an inclusive global trade system.
Through our Sustainability Roadmap we seek to play our part in building resilient supply chains, drawing on our solid foundations and creating value for our people, our customers, communities and the planet. Spanning MSC’s entire Cargo Division, our Roadmap and three priorities guide progress along our journey as we deliver on our sustainability commitments.
Climate action is a global imperative, requiring collective action as we navigate our journey to net zero. MSC has a key role to play in decarbonising logistics, collaborating with others across the value chain to accelerate solutions at scale, while ensuring a just energy transition. As a key part of our customers’ supply chains, we see ourselves as partners in decarbonisation and enablers of their increasingly ambitious climate targets.
We enable logistics decarbonisation by aiming for carbon neutrality; supporting logistics transition solutions; and maintaining a focus on energy efficiency.
The global economy relies on transport and logistics to enable trade, generating growth and social prosperity. MSC is in a unique position to create value by connecting local communities, facilitating access to a global market and supporting customers through resilient and disruption-free supply chains.
We foster inclusive trade by contributing to economic growth; building resilience across the global value chain; and developing local capacity and know-how.
We live in an interconnected world where the business of global companies connects and brings prosperity to people and societies. Advancing human rights and ensuring a just transition to a zero-carbon economy are at the heart of MSC business. Our social impact extends beyond our diverse workforce and includes our business partners with whom we work to build a sustainable supply network.
We address social challenges by advancing human rights; promoting diversity, equity and inclusion; and engaging our supply chain.
MSC issues an annual Sustainability Report to share progress on our sustainability journey.
In our Report we include data with reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards and in line with their reporting principles of accuracy, balance, clarity, comparability, completeness, sustainability context, timeliness and verifiability. The GRI content index helps our stakeholders navigate the disclosures and information reported in our Report. MSC’s Sustainability Report also adheres to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights Global Reporting Framework.
As an active participant of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), our Report forms part of our Communication on Progress to embed the UNGC’s Ten Principles into our strategies and operations, as well as our efforts to support societal priorities. This report also forms part of our commitment to the Sustainable Ocean Principles on data and transparency in relation to our ocean-related activities, impacts and dependencies.
