Conserving and restoring the environment, wherever we operate and beyond, is a cause very close to our hearts due to our nautical heritage and passion for the sea
The MSC Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organisation that was established by the Aponte family to lead, focus and advance the MSC Group's conservation and humanitarian commitments. Its vision is to restore the critical balance between people and nature within a generation. Its mission is to utilise MSC's global reach and unique knowledge of the sea to take immediate action that contributes to protecting and nurturing the blue planet and all its people.
The MSC Foundation is motivated by our deep sense of responsibility for the planet and its resources, particularly the oceans, and driven by our shared duty to leave a better world for the future generations.
Through it, we are able to assist disaster-struck populations toward recovery and support vulnerable communities around the world to realise their full potential through education, sustainable development and medical humanitarian programs.
The Foundation works both independently and in conjunction with trusted partners that have a strong innovative vision or track record for effective action.
MSC works hand-in-hand with the MSC Foundation to offer support for humanitarian relief efforts in affected communities.
MSC has been supporting Mercy Ships since 2011, helping it to bring hope and healing to thousands of people without access to safe, modern healthcare or surgery. The MSC Group provides logistical support to Mercy Ships, enabling it to concentrate more of its resources on healthcare, while the MSC Foundation provides direct funding.
