Our commitment to sustainability demonstrates how we are planning for growth with the care and due diligence needed to ensure long-term success. We do this by striving to implement our high standards and values consistently in changing and diverse markets.
Our customers, employees and consumers expect responsible business behavior at every step of the supply chain. At Damco, we see this approach as a source of competitive advantage.
The foundation of our sustainability strategy is a partnership approach with our many stakeholders: our customers, our employees, our suppliers, and our local communities. By joining with others, we can have greater impact.
For example, as part of Maersk Group, we are a member of the UN Global Compact Lead Group and collaborate with other business units and companies to share best practices that guide corporate behaviour in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. In the World Economic Forum’s Partnership Against Corruption Initiative (PACI), we work with industry peers to promote responsible business practices.
We are working towards reducing the impact of our business activities on the environment through the responsible use of resources in our offices and warehouses. We also promote best practices in carbon reduction with our customers, suppliers and partners. In the Clean Cargo Working Group, we help set accurate industry standards for measuring our customers’ international supply chain carbon footprint.
Damco also has several Corporate Social Responsibility activities which we believe are not only a prerequisite to be a corporate citizen, but also present opportunities to engage our employees and communities. Our activities include probono logistics expertise and services in Logistics Emergency Teams disaster relief, and volunteering and fund-raising for community-focused initiatives.
