For many years, our focus has been on developing and providing investments that are positioned for the future: Renewable energy projects that are essential for the energy transition, ships with alternative propulsion technologies to further decarbonise global trade, and real estate that meets high sustainability standards.
“Our decarbonisation strategy is based on the goals of the IMO 2050 regulation, which we are committed to and emphatically support.”
Christian Rychly, Managing Director Shipping
“The expansion of renewable energies is one of the most important ways of tackling climate change and restoring clean air for future generations. We are involved especially in regions that are still highly dependent on fossil fuels.”
Fernando Zúñiga, Managing Director Renewables
“Our vision is to create buildings that are fit for the future and meet tenant requirements. We look for sustainability that extends well beyond technical criteria.“
Christoph J. Thumm, Managing Director Real Estate

The Elbe Foundation, which we established, supports educationally disadvantaged youth and is thus in line with SDGs 4, 5 and 10. In addition, we are committed to equal opportunities and human dignity, ensure good and equal working conditions and actively monitor health, safety and environmental (HSE) aspects. This is in line with SDGs 5 and 8.
We assume social responsibility at our location: Education is crucial for a professional future. Many children in Hamburg from socially deprived, low-income and / or immigrant families start school at a disadvantage. For over 18 years, MPC Capital has therefore been supporting educationally disadvantaged young people with its Elbstiftung.
As part of the Elbstation Academy project, young people rehearse plays, produce radio reports and make films, which are then performed in theatres throughout Hamburg. In this way, Elbstation promotes self-esteem and motivation, helps young people to become successful and facilitates their access to better education.
