ESG ratings: the new focus of shipping boardrooms
Date: Tuesday, 30 March Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings are topping boardroom agendas, an emphasis reflected in the prominence leading shipping companies are giving to ESG considerations in their quarterly results, annual reports and governance documents. Maritime CEOs and CFOs and those directing ESG initiatives recognise their access to cargo, capital and ports is at risk if they cannot meet the standards expected by regulators, the market and the public. This webinar will provide clear guidance on what makes for an effective ESG strategy.
Join us as we cover
- How COVID-19 strengthened the hand of shipping’s ESG investors and regulators
- Enhanced transparency. Enhanced reporting. Enhanced returns.
- Why responsible ship recycling matters. The core constituents of an effective approach
- ESG market and policy changes in the year ahead
- New investors. New financing tools.

ESG’s human face: where crew welfare and technology intersect
Date: Wednesday 31 March Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT
Technology has a vital role to play in supporting the physical and mental welfare of crew, training and safety, enabling vessel owners and operators to deliver and demonstrate the human face of their ESG approach. The catalyst has been COVID-19. The pandemic has propelled the plight of the stranded seafarer up the industry’s and wider society’s agendas. Investors and insurance communities are highly sensitised to crew welfare issues, as are industry associations and NGOs which have shown an unwavering determination to maintain the visibility of crew welfare issues and to shame those who fall short.
Join us as we cover
- COVID-19, crew training, crew welfare and maintaining safe operations
- Using technology to balance charter, crew and commercial requirements
- The shift to the virtual: training, verification, e-learning and tele-medicine
- Overcoming bureaucratic hoops and complications

ESG emissions reporting and compliance
Date: Thursday 1 April Time: 09:00-09:45 GMT
Vessel operators need to be able to track, report and benchmark their carbon emissions to demonstrate compliance, win business and justify investment. The requirement is real and intensifying. The IMO is being lobbied to use its 2023 strategy review to introduce a transparent standard emissions reporting approach. Voyage charterparty clauses are being prepared/stipulated that oblige vessel owners to collect fuel consumption data.
Join us as we cover
- Whether your fleet is ready to meet short-term emissions measures entering into force in 2023
- What the Carbon Intensity Indicator regime requires of every operator
- The incentives and support available for adoption of greener fuels and shore power
- The financial and other penalties of non-compliance
