As a globally active shipping company, MPC Container Ships considers the creation of share- and stakeholder value as the core purpose of our business activities. Yet, we believe, that the ability to create long-term sustainable value lies in linking economic and financial advancements with environmental, social and governance propositions and thus following the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility.
Adapting to the future and changing environment of our business and the general market as well as preparing for the challenges that those developments imply, is the key element of our long-term business strategy. Our mission is to future-proof our business and create stakeholder value through:
- Being a professional and positive workplace with an inclusive working environment. Health and safety of our employees are always the main priority.
- Supporting collective climate ambitions and leverage industry networks to accelerate change.
- Valuing professional, transparent, and fair business relationships by acting as a transparent and trustworthy business partner.
In order to set the appropriate guidelines and provide clear frameworks for all actions and measures MPCC undertakes in this regard, eight policies have been established that manifest our endeavors to managing our fleet in an efficient and responsible way. The policies cover the following topics:
Adopting a long-term perspective in our business strategy and decision making, that is taking economic and ecological aspects equally into account.
