15+15 webinar: One billion bottles

11 May 2023

One billion bottles - What can and should the shipping industry do to play it’s part in addressing marine plastic litter? Ship-based sources of plastics to the ocean are largely unknown but its estimated that they are significantly lower than plastics from mismanagement on land. This is particularly valid for commercial ships where regulation is simple – discharge of all plastics into the sea from ships is prohibited. Nonetheless at BIMCO we believe that shipping should play its part in the marine plastics story –we have the potential to be leaders in this area- removing and reducing unnecessary plastics on board as well as advocating for change in how plastic waste is managed on land.
