The Evergreen Group started out in the shipping industry. Dr. Chang Yung-Fa, the founder of the Evergreen Group, always valued the training of marine talent and always placed great value on marine culture and education. Co-organized with the Chang Yung-Fa Foundation, Evergreen Marine participated many events in public welfare service in the hope of contributing to the society.
In 2019, Evergreen Marine attended "Build Your Golden Route" maritime career lectures and designated a captain or chief engineer to schools, giving students a better idea of what it is like to work at sea.
In 2019, Evergreen sponsored summer camps for students from disadvantaged families and "Paint a Marvelous Ship" competition for elementary school students and impaired groups, and donated 12 20-foot containers to Adolescents' Home in Taoyuan.
Evergreen enthusiastically participated in maritime rescues and disaster assistance.
Evergreen has sponsored artistic activities such as inviting employees and their families, customers, charities and social welfare groups to Evergreen Symphony Orchestra concerts free of charge since 2018.
In response to the International Coastal Cleanup Day on September 21, 2019, Evergreen's top management led employees and their family members for the coastal cleanup activities in Taoyuan and Kaohsiung. Moreover, employees from Evergreen Marine (Singapore) and Evergreen Shipping Agency (India) Mumbai, Chennai, Tuticorin and Kochi offices also participated in the coastal cleanup events and contributed to ocean environmental protection.
