Our Mission

To utilise MSC’s global reach and unique knowledge of the sea to take immediate action that contributes to protecting and nurturing the blue planet and all its people

The MSC Foundation is motivated by a deep sense of responsibility for the planet and its resources, particularly the oceans, conscious that we all have a duty to leave a better world for future generations.

Our commitment

The MSC Foundation takes action in harmony with the values of the MSC Group, leveraging its expertise and presence on the seas. Embodying the Group's commitment to protecting and nurturing our blue planet and assisting communities in need, we work with trusted partners to support programmes tailored for long-term impacts.

Our Focus Areas

Environmental Conservation

With our global shipping heritage, the MSC Foundation is keenly aware of the increasing fragility of our planet’s interlinked ecosystems and committed to leaving a better world for future generations.

Community Support

We support the most vulnerable communities around the world to realize their full potential through education, sustainable development and humanitarian medical programmes.


Environmental education, school education and vocational education. We’re committed to supporting all three, from the Ivory Coast to Italy. Because education lays the foundation for a brighter future for all of us and our planet.

Emergency Relief

We intervene promptly in disaster situations, even obtaining emergency supplies on our own initiative and shipping them by MSC Cargo to deliver the containers directly to the areas affected.

Become a partner

We build close partnerships with organisations worldwide that have a strong innovative vision or track record for effective action. Because together, we can make a difference.
