Delivering on seafarers' rights - 2022 progress report

Delivering on seafarers' rights 2022 Progress Report

The Delivering on Seafarers’ Rights progress report reflects on the twelve months since the launch of the Code of Conduct and self-assessment questionnaire in October 2021.

The report is intended to signpost progress within the industry in respecting seafarers’ rights and welfare, and reflect on areas for further work and improvement.

Led by the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) and the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB), the report brings together a range of stakeholders to reflect on the current situation for seafarers, look at trends in the data from the RightShip Crew Welfare Tool, and identify areas where further work is needed.
