Maritime Anti-Corruption Network Annual Report 2021

As we celebrate The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network’s (MACN) ten years of growth, and reflect on the last 12 months’ work, we cannot ignore the enormous and ongoing repercussions of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the maritime supply chain crunch, and the invasion of the Ukraine by Russia. These events have led to seismic changes in the maritime operating environment, a renewed focus on anti-corruption as part of foreign policy, strict sanctions now being implemented, and a focus on companies’ ethical conduct and tangible ESG reporting.




ESG in the context of the shipping industry’s fight against corruption in the maritime supply chain

Addressing all ESG requirements is no easy task given the scope and rapidly changing areas of focus. One lesson MACN has learned is that things are much easier when the industry works together in areas of that impact us all. The more we share and work together when fighting corruption (as an example) the more we can achieve as a group. One vessel of a single company trying to change the world is hard – but 50% of the fleet working together is a powerful voice for change.
