Insight magazine issue 5 2012
The fifth edition of Insight, Lloyd's Register's business-level magazine for its clients and other stakeholders, covers a wide range of subjects that focus on the critical infrastructure that society relies on to sustain life, and quality of life.
In this issue we start with a look at some of the implications of the steadily increasing urbanisation in the world. What opportunities and problems does this create? What does it mean for business? What about the pressures on our food chain and water supply? We have talked to senior management at Larsen and Toubro about India’s urbanisation challenges and look at Singapore - an urbanisation success story.
As usual, we also cover others topics of interest across the sectors that we serve: the strategic value of certified management systems; storing renewable energy; the future for coal; and Asia carbon trading schemes. Interviews include Polys Hajioannou, Chairman of Safe Bulkers; Christine Duffy, President and CEO of the Cruise Lines International Association; Paul Holthus, Executive Director of the World Ocean Council; and Leo van Dongen, Director of NedTrain Fleet Services and Professor Maintenance Engineering, University of Twente.
