In a podcast moderated by Lloyd’s List managing editor Richard Meade, the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) and Lloyd’s Register bring together industry experts to talk about why the sustainability of marine fuels needs to be taken into account alongside price, availability and technical feasibility considerations.


  • Katharine Palmer, Global Sustainability Manager at Lloyd’s Register
  • Simon Bennett, General Manager for Sustainable Development, The China Navigation Company
  • Mark Lutes, Senior Advisor on Global Climate Policy, WWF Climate and Energy Practice

The panel of SSI members discussed the sustainability principles to be taken into account on a well-to-wake basis – from social, labour and human rights, to safety, to land use change and more.

Listen below, and read the white paper Defining sustainability criteria for zero and low carbon fuels which sets out thirteen sustainability principles surrounding the marine fuels under consideration for shipping decarbonisation.
