Sustainable Shipping Initiative

Sustainable Shipping Initiative

Introduced at Singapore Maritime Week, the new initiative aims to develop a sustainable shipping industry with short-term results expected by the end of 2013 and the full vision achieved by 2040.

The SSI is comprised of 16 global companies and two non-governmental organisations working in close partnership to develop new knowledge, prototypes, technologies and financial models to promote sustainability.

With this in mind, the SSI has been split into four areas including financing sustainable shipping, innovation in energy technology, closed loop recycling of ships, credible benchmarking and standards. Each area will draw on member expertise, which covers everything from ship building and engineering to marine finance to global supply chain.
