When industries come together across the value chain, an environment for scalable change is created. In 2014, Maersk Line’s top-20 automotive customers collectively saved 136,000 tonnes of CO2 by shipping with Maersk Line – a number we want to increase in the coming years.
Automotive and container shipping businesses represent different sectors of the transportation industry, yet they share a mutual commitment to innovative thinking and innovative business models – and sustainability is no exception.

JOIN OUR WEBINAR AND BE PART OF THE DISCUSSION
At Maersk Line, we lead the way in ‘doing more with less’. We constantly seek out innovative and commercially viable ways of reducing our environmental impacts, be it CO2 and other air emissions, ballast water, or the materials we use to build our vessels.
In a highly competitive automotive industry, sustainability has climbed to the top of the agenda for many of Maersk Line’s automotive customers, who are looking for long term partners that can service increasingly complex global supply chains and can do so in a responsible manner.
In the autumn of 2014, the BMW Group and Maersk Line signed a joint ‘Sustainability Roadmap’ – a Carbon Pact. This is a 5-year strategic deal committing both companies to closer collaboration on sustainable ocean transport.
The BMW Group is now pushing ahead of the curve through partnering with Maersk Line, aiming at reducing the environmental footprint from ocean procurement. Specifically, Maersk Line has committed to reducing BMW’s CO2 emissions by 25% per container moved from 2011-2018.
The partnership agreement is a win-win for both parties For the BMW Group, it demonstrates commitment to sustainability towards customers, regulators and investors. For Maersk Line, it is another important milestone in our efforts to service a growing demand for sustainable shipping services.
Maersk Line will continue to work closely with automotive partners to innovate and drive the business models needed to ensure sustainable value chains in the industry in the years ahead.
ON WEDNESDAY THE 25TH OF NOVEMBER
we are hosting a webinar where you can join us and discuss climate change and its implications on global trade. We will be joined by BMW and talking about how Maersk Line and BMW teamed up in a Carbon Pact to minimize the carbon footprint we are leaving behind in our daily business
