EVENT #111 – ESG influencing shipping decisions, 18 May 2023

On Thursday 18 May 2023 the SPNL and DNV  hosted an exciting discussion on how ESG considerations are influencing shipping decisions .

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance is gaining increasing attention from multiple stakeholders such as regulators, financiers and cargo interests. Along with decarbonisation goals, there is a growing demand for fact-based disclosure of shipping companies’ sustainability goals. Business as usual is not an option anymore.

What is ESG and how are stakeholders gauging how you are performing? What are the implications for poor ESG scores?
