Last week saw the launch of the Delivering on seafarers’ rights progress report, the first since the publication of the Code of Conduct. The progress report is intended to signpost progress within the industry in respecting seafarers’ rights and welfare, and reflect on areas for further work and improvement.

The progress report outlines key issues and changes faced by seafarers since the launch of the Delivering on seafarers’ rights Code of Conduct in October 2021. 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.

Contributors to the report include: Coles Group, Lloyd’s Register Foundation, International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF), The Mission to Seafarers (MtS), MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), Nautilus International, RightShip, and Swire Shipping.
