Maersk Tankers conducts its business conscious of social and environmental impact and aims to reduce such impact. This is reflected in our sustainability strategy, which focuses on safety, regulatory compliance, the environment and responsible business practices. 


We ensure the safety of our employees and contractors, assets and protection of the environment. Safety relates to personal safety, operational safety and security, and we are responsible for carrying out our business efficiently and incident free.


We are exploring technology and fuel options to ensure a cost-effective compliance. Compliance with regulations requires investment and commitment, which should be shared equitably between all stakeholders in the industry.


We reduce the environmental impact of our operations by reducing CO2 and other harmful emissions. Climate change affects everyone, and we have a part to play by doing business in a way that minimizes our environmental impact.

Responsible business

We uphold our values and protect our name. Responsible business relates to anti-corruption, responsible procurement and respect for labour and human rights. This benefits the environment and the social fabric of society.
