Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, CEO at TOTOTHEO MARITIME & President at WISTA International, defines what sustainability means for shipping, referring to its three pillars – economic, social and environmental – and addressing also key steps to take for action.
Referring to key priorities for a robust, resilient and sustainable maritime sector, Mr. Gavin Allwright, Secretary General, IWSA, highlights the need for an integrated approach that will ensure up-stream and down-stream impacts are always assessed in a transparent and collaborative way and emissions aren’t shifted, offset or dumped into other sectors.
Maritime still needs a better understanding of sustainability benefits and impacts, says Lloyd’s Register Global Sustainability Manager Katharine Palmer who acknowledges transparency and decarbonisation in connection with digitalisation as the defining trends toward 2050.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is defined as the process for organizations to integrate social, environmental, ethical and human rights concerns into their operations and core strategy, in close collaboration with their stakeholders. In this context, SAFETY4SEA’s annual survey aims to assess the CSR performance of the maritime industry by examining 10 factors according to ISO 26000 requirements and CSR strategy of EU.
As shipping faces more regulation and there are wider demands for commercial transparency, we can no longer afford to turn the other cheek and accept corruption as a cost of doing business, notes Leon van Duivendijk, Director Shared Resources, Vroon B.V.
