The Lloyd’s List Podcast: How to make ship recycling sustainable
Listen to the latest edition of Lloyd’s List’s weekly podcast — your free weekly briefing on the stories shaping shipping
We are talking ship recycling on the podcast this week. Specifically, how we drive positive change and move this conversation on beyond the finger pointing politics that has dominated the scrapping debate for years. This edition features speakers from Standard Chartered Bank, Lloyd's Register, Norden and The Sustainable Shipping Initiative
PROGRESS has been made towards sustainable ship recycling in recent years, but let’s face it, there is much more that is still required.
Amid the industry-wide disruption and shifting tectonics of decarbonisation, we have a generational opportunity to accelerate progress towards a truly sustainable industry as ship designs adapt to the new normal of a circular economy.
This week we discuss:
• 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;
• and the need for collaboration beyond shipping involving a wider cast of stakeholders prepared to lead.
But this is a conversation that requires the input of many stakeholders, so this edition of the podcast is a panel debate that aims to reflect those views and offer some leadership on the changes that now need to be taken up industry-wide.
We welcome to the panel:
Roger Charles, Executive Director, Environmental and Social Risk Management at Standard Chartered Bank
Jennifer Riley James, Senior Ship Recycling Specialist, Lloyd's Register
Andrew Stephens, Executive Director at The Sustainable Shipping Initiative and the ship recycling transparency initiative
Kristina Kunigenas, Sustainability Manager, Norden
