In a podcast moderated by Lloyd’s List managing editor Richard Meade, the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) brings together industry experts to demystify Circular Shipping, exploring how circularity applies to shipping and its decarbonisation journey, and why the time is now to act.

  • Prashant Widge, Head of Responsible Ship Recycling, Maersk
  • Samantha Bramley, Executive Director, Environmental and Social Risk Management, Standard Chartered Bank
  • Andrew Stephens, Executive Director, Sustainable Shipping Initiative

The panel of SSI members discussed how the industry can use circular economy principles to their advantage to further reduce emissions, with a focus on steel,  all whilst being supported by financial institutions.
