Our ocean in crisis? 2014’s first issue of Insight examines our ocean’s survival

New app version available of Lloyd’s Register’s issues-driven magazine

The survival of the ocean is the lead theme of the seventh issue of Insight, Lloyd’s Register’s issues-driven magazine for clients and other industry stakeholders. We rely on the sea as a food source, for supply chain distribution, for pleasure and for its balancing effect on the climate. Insight takes a look at the threats to the ocean and ways to ensure a sustainable future. It includes an interview with Helle Gleie, Director of the Sustainable Shipping Initiative.

As usual, the magazine covers others topics of interest across the business sectors that Lloyd's Register serves from tidal energy, shale gas, future marine fuels, management systems and food safety to a new award-winning biomass freight wagon.
