Speaking as the membership was announced, Bjørge Grimholt, WSS President said:

“Membership of a global body such as MACN means that we are able to make an impact in the fight towards eradicating corruption issues across our industry. We believe that working together with MACN is vital if we are to continue to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers and comply with the legal requirements that our business places upon us across our global network.”

“Despite our best efforts, we cannot change the environments we work in overnight, but what we can do is continue to ensure we are working in the right way by adhering to the strong governance principles which have helped build our own reputation over the past 150 years.”

MACN is a global business network which works through its members towards the vision of a maritime industry free of corruption. It also promotes fair trade and good corporate practice within the maritime industry with regards to tackling bribes, facilitation payments and other forms of corruption.

It does this by developing and sharing best practice, creating awareness and collaborating with stakeholders to develop sustainable solutions.

MACN also works with governments, authorities and international organizations in markets where corruption is prevalent, to identify and mitigate the root causes.
