Given the challenging times that 2020 has presented to all of us, we hope you, your family, and your friends are keeping safe.

After the success of GMS’s first three webinars on the Ship recycling industry, we are pleased to advise on our upcoming webinar on “Importance of HKC to ship recycling: Japan’s leadership in the past and the path forward”.

Webinar Highlights:

Japanese initiatives in sustainable ship recycling:
• Development of Hong Kong Convention (HKC): How processes created by the Japanese government, shipowners, and Class NK, laid the foundation for safe and sustainable ship recycling globally.

• Ratification of Hong Kong Convention by major ship owning nations.
o Where are we today?
o Improvements in yard facilities and operations in Alang
o Current statistics of HKC SoC yards and the number of ships recycled in these yards.

Where do we go from here?
• The path forward for the ratification of HKC.
• Increasing capacity of Green recycling yards in existing countries and facilitating the development of HKC compliant yards in Bangladesh and Pakistan
• More EU nations and stakeholders to endorse HKC and contest biased & untrue allegations
