Partnerships & Alliances
Creating a greener and more sustainable shipping industry requires collaboration. We collaborate with organizations that drive and support sustainable development initiatives to achieve this goal. By working together, we can share knowledge, expertise, and resources to make a positive impact on the environment, while promoting economic growth and social progress.

Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping
The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping (the Center) is an independent, not-for-profit research and development center established in 2020 with funding from the A.P. Møller Foundation. The Center works dedicated to accelerating the decarbonization of the global maritime industry. This complex challenge requires unprecedented collaboration across sectors, industries, and geographies. Working with their partners, governments, authorities, public sector bodies, scientists, and organizations across the global maritime industry, they aim to inform, de-risk decision-making, and spark real climate action.
Maritime Anti-Corruption Network
Höegh Autoliners is a member and co-founder of a shipping network called Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN). MACN is a global business network working towards its vision of a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large. By adopting the MACN Anti-Corruption Principles, communicating progress on implementation, sharing best practices, and creating awareness of industry challenges we are promoting good corporate practices for tackling bribes, facilitation payments and other forms of corruption.
