Our primary focus of value creation for the wider community is through education, with an emphasis on maritime education, aligned to our mission to ‘create a positive difference to the lives of communities’. Our Community Strategy, as part of the MISC Sustainability Strategy, was developed to encapsulate these commitments, where the strategic initiatives and programmes under the strategy had been developed to support the overarching objective of investing in the next generation via education.

Our strategy has also been developed to promote a more cohesive, coordinated and synergistic approach towards our broader community investment initiatives that is inclusive and considerate of the Group’s goals, strengths and resources as well as our presence in various locations around the world.
