Awards and nominations

“The partnership is a groundbreaking and strong example of how a CSR initiative can create shared value. The FairFishing station is generating financial revenue in a local community that is commonly known abroad for piracy and refugees fleeing to Europe’s shores. At the same time, it provides Maersk Line with a base in an area that is well on the way to becoming a regional trade hub. This innovative concept should inspire other businesses to try roads less travelled within CSR.”

“The award goes to Jakob Johannsen, who initiated Somali Fair Fishing – a project which embodies one of the strongest and most beautiful principles in peaceful conflict resolution: Getting to the root of a conflict, thinking creatively and initiating brand new, previously unthought solutions – rather than meeting fire with fire or giving up.”
