2nd Global Ship Recycling Summit


Following the 1st Global Ship Scrapping Summit in Amsterdam in 1999 and the consequent initiatives taken by the MEPC/IMO, it can be concluded that the issue of ship scrapping or ship recycling is firmly on the agenda. Today's maritime industry, with it's increased drive toward quality shipping is capable of defining and taking up an initiative for positive action which will satisfy the demand for a solution to the problems plaguing the ship recycling industry, while considering all aspects of the issue, from the environmental to the economical.

The 2nd Global Ship Recycling Summit, in an attempt to facilitate this initiative will address the ship recycling issue and define an agenda for action accordingly. The Dutch Ministry of the Environment is funding the conference.

The conference will address the following topics:

  • The Political Voice: Solutions Now, Time's Up!
  • The drive for quality ship recycling in the political arena
  • The apparent contradiction between the economy and the environment
  • What are the costs of quality ship recycling
  • Whether the IMO should be the leading regulator in ship recycling
  • Can the IMO machinery forestall unilateral actions of responsible governments
  • Ship recycling cost is part of the life cycle management of ships
  • Ship recycling is a meaningful economic activity for many developing countries with a large contribution to socio-economic development
  • Quality ship recycling costs should be born by the maritime industry
  • Can the financial incentive structures of other industries be used to achieve the objectives
