A.P. Moller - Maersk aspires to lead the transformation of the global ship recycling industry to promote responsible practices, greater transparency and a level playing field. Around 80% of all ships are dismantled at sub-standard facilities in South Asia. This happens despite many large shipowners having a policy on responsible ship recycling. This is an industry problem which leads to widespread underpayments, unsafe working conditions and environmental pollution as well as an uneven playing field within the shipping industry. No shipowner can solve this alone. In the absence of relevant and enforced global legislation, market-based solutions are needed to make responsible ship recycling a reality. A high, voluntary standard must go hand in hand with strong implementation on the ground, achieved through robust supervision and audits. Since 2009, A.P. Moller - Maersk has had a responsible ship recycling standard based on a strict interpretation of the Hong Kong Convention regarding health, safety and environmental issues but also going beyond the Hong Kong Convention in that it does not allow contact in the intertidal zone with blocks from primary cutting and as it includes all internationally based standards on all relevant social issues as well as downstream waste management. Furthermore, we have restricted ourselves not to sell vessels off if they are close to end of life eliminating incentives for selling vessels with the aim of substandard recycling by third parties Maersk will continue to create change on the ground and engage with shipowners and other stakeholders to accelerate change
