Social challenges

We live in an interconnected world where the business of global companies connects and brings prosperity to people and societies. Advancing human rights and ensuring a just transition to a zero-carbon economy are at the heart of MSC business. Our social impact extends beyond our diverse workforce and includes our business partners with whom we work to build a sustainable supply network.

Addressing  Social challenges
As a global company with close links to others as part of a complex supply chain, MSC works with its customers, supply chain partners and private and public sector stakeholders to foster responsible business practices and enhance human rights-based due diligence processes, going beyond compliance. These social issues are relevant to all three of MSC’s Sustainability Priorities and we continue engaging at the local, regional and international levels – both as an individual company and through multi-stakeholder initiatives – to maximise our social impact in a post-pandemic world.

Our global workforce is key to our impact on economic growth, contributing to long-term development and supporting local communities. Our people bring their diverse backgrounds, competencies and skills to improve our understanding of operational contexts and markets, building local capacity and enhancing our positive impact. In the new world of work MSC’s approach to managing and developing talent continues to evolve, celebrating our diversity and recognising the value of the people working with us today – and those who will join the MSC family tomorrow.

At MSC, advancing the international business and Human Rights agenda and tackling the social challenges impacting our operations remain a priority. At MSC we actively engage our stakeholders, collaborating with partners to advocate for shared solutions to social challenges.

MSC believes in the power of people to connect the world. From our employees at sea and ashore to all our customers, we have a collective responsibility to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our people in the 150+ countries where we operate.
