Following the postponement of the Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative (SRTI) in-person roundtable event (March 2020) due to COVID-19, the SRTI community is instead meeting at a series of themed webinars between April and June 2020. Each webinar covers a theme of relevance to the SRTI’s vision and responsible ship recycling: data and transparency, circular economy, and the role of financial stakeholders.

The webinar series forms an important part of the SRTI’s further development, identifying areas for expansion of the disclosure criteria against which shipowners are currently disclosing, and stakeholders’ use of this data. They will also explore common themes and concerns for the potential development of disclosure criteria for ship building yards and ship recycling facilities, to be shared in a final online roundtable event, scheduled to take place later this year.


This page will be updated as the webinars take place and the summaries become available.

Please note that this webinar series is by invitation only. If you would like to request an invitation for yourself or your organisation, email us at
