As a future-driven company with a 140-year tradition, we see sustainable conduct as an indispensable part of our entrepreneurial activity. In pursuing this goal, Hamburg Süd relies on a business development that adopts a comprehensive view of three key areas: ecology, society and economics.

Being a responsible business, compliance with all relevant laws, rules and regulations is of utmost importance to us. In this regard, we attach great value to active communication with internal and external stakeholders, as well as with customers, representatives from the business and scientific communities and society. For instance, as a member of initiatives such as the Clean Cargo Working Group , we champion the drive for more sustainability in the international transport business.

The three key components environment, society and economics can in turn be subdivided into various subareas as shown in the following diagram:
