Did you know that over 70% of end-of-life vessels find their way to South Asia for recycling? Beyond just being a source of scrap steel for the industry, this practice holds great potential for reducing carbon intensity and promoting sustainability.

Discover how initiatives like the Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative (SRTI) are shaping the future of this industry with their innovative "Yard Assessment Framework" and uncovering the transformative power of sustainable ship recycling towards a greener, more responsible future.

  • Regulatory landscape evolution: assessing ship recyclers performances to promote responsible practices through an independent tool.
  • Ship recycling and green steel: a blueprint for sourcing sustainable steel scrap from ship recycling.
  • The role of finance stakeholders in ship recycling.
