Platform Sustainable Shipping

Platform Sustainable Shipping: In 2006 Dutch shipowners, ports, ship builders and the North Sea Foundation, agreed to form a platform on sustainable shipping. As one of the founders of this platform, I can look back to see that this development has played an important role in raising awareness about environmental issues within the maritime industry. (www.schonescheepvaart.nl). The Platform regularly organizes conferences and seminars on a range of topics such as ballast water, ship finance, energy efficiency and ship recycling.
