The company is one of the founding members of MACN – which is a global business network working towards the vision of a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large.
Established in 2011 by a small group of committed maritime companies, MACN has grown to include over 100 members globally and has become one of the pre-eminent examples of collective action to tackle corruption.
J. Lauritzen works with MACN towards the elimination of all forms of maritime corruption by:
- raising awareness of the challenges faced;
- training its staff at sea and ashore to tackle incidences of corruption and
- reporting its data back into the network to strengthen and benefit its efforts.
International Anti-Corruption Day has been observed annually on 9 December since the passage of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption on 31 October 2003, to raise public awareness for anti-corruption. The day offers an opportunity for MACN members and participants to highlight collective achievements and invite others—companies, donors, governments, etc.—to join the movement.
This year the company is celebrating the achievements of MACN, through which it is working with over 100 peer companies and other stakeholders to eliminate corruption in the maritime industry.
