SAFETY4SEA is pleased to announce that Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) has received the 2019 SAFETY4SEA Sustainability Award at a prestigious award ceremony which successfully concluded on October the 1st at Yacht Club of Greece in Athens, the evening ahead of the SAFETY4SEA Conference.
While the voting procedure for the 2019 SAFETY4SEA Awards is open, Andrew Stephens, Executive Director and Nicole Rencoret, Head of Communications and Development of the Sustainable Shipping Initiative insist on a collaborative approach for the shipping industry to face upcoming challenges.
When it comes to ship recycling, transparency is the top priority, SSI argues; in this regard, it is important shipowners to share information on their ship recycling policies and practices, allowing their data to tell their story. Responsible ship recycling is an important part of being a responsible industry, SSI concludes.
