Maersk response

We always conduct our business accordingly to the law. When the EU regulation is ready, we will comply with this regulation as well...we recognize and admit that our own contracts from divestments have not always guaranteed the intention of our recycling policy. We have learned from this. We have tightened our procedures and contract requirements while also realizing that the solution does not lie with clever...contracts and that it may take a long time for a global agreement to become effective...We have taken action instead of waiting on the sideline and the results we have achieved in a few months are far more comprehensive and far-reaching than the seven years of waiting for a global agreement.
