01 Valuing our people's wellbeing and diversity
We are a global company of nearly 9,500 people, working on vessels and at ports, processing centers, and offices in nearly 45 countries. We pride ourselves on being a responsible employer, and we aim to be an irresistible place to work - that's how we stay one step ahead of the competition. Our employees are our greatest asset, and we recognise the strong link between employee satisfaction and creating value.
We are also looking out for the men and women working for our suppliers and contractors, carefully selecting partners who share our values, while ensuring that there are no violations of human rights in the supply chain.

03 Protecting life below water
The ocean is one of the planet's most sustaining and majestic resources.
To us, protecting life below water means maintaining the ocean's biodiversity and safeguarding the ocean's ecosystems. Since our operations can pose threats to both, we embrace innovation to find new, novel solutions that decrease our impacts on life below water, while remaining vigilant in our compliance efforts.

04 Navigating towards zero emissions
The world is quickly moving towards a healthier, emissions free future - an opportunity for leadershipping which we embrace.
Transforming logistics into a zero emissions, carbon-free industry is the challenge of a generation. It's also our opportunity to redefine sustainable logistics for a world in motion.
We've been tracking our emissions for a decade, reducing SOX emissions while improving our CO2 efficiency with each new vessel in our fleet. We created the industry's first zero emissions concept RoRo vessel, along with a green terminal and processing center, too.
We like challenges, the bigger the better!
Check out the Getting to Zero Coalition to learn how we are working collaboratively to develop commercially viable zero emission vessels by 2030.
