Moderated by Lloyd’s List Managing Editor Richard Meade, the Sustainable Shipping Initiative, Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative and Lloyd’s Register bring together industry experts to look at how different maritime stakeholders approach and understand ship recycling.

In the past decade, regulatory efforts seeking safer ship demolition have seen many organisations reassess their activities – much has been achieved, but there is much more that can be done.

In a 45 minute session, leading players in ship recycling share their insights on:

  • How data reporting and transparency are increasingly playing a role in driving change.
  • The shifting dynamics of ESG requirements and the emergence of the circular economy.
  • The need for collaboration beyond shipping involving a wider cast of stakeholders prepared to lead.
