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.

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

This progress report and additional work in this area have been made possible by funding from the Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. We thank them for their continued support of this work.
