Sustainability ESG Marlink
Social & Governance

to make a difference today and in the future

At Marlink, we understand the sustainability challenges presented by a data and technology driven world. We have taken steps to address these challenges through reducing the environmental impact of our infrastructure, fostering a diverse and skilled workforce and investing in data security.  

Our priority is the well-being of our employees and the communities in which we operate; implementing measures to ensure the safety and welfare of our workers, as well as collaborating with local communities to aid talent development and support their economy.  

Delivery and integrity are at the core of all our operations with strong governance practices and due diligence that promote transparency, accountability, and ethical conduct in all aspects of our business. We aim to build trust with our stakeholders and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future.  

All of this is backed by our commitment to continuous improvement, underpinned by robust governance practices and supply chain processes so we can find new ways to create possibilities for you.
