Sustainable Shipping Initiative adds new GM 

June 5, 2016 |

In the UK, the Sustainable Shipping Initiative appointed top P&O Maritime executive Ian Petty as its first General Manager as the organization turns towards implementation of its 2040 Roadmap. Alastair Fischbacher, the SSI’s current CEO, will be appointed Co-Chair of the organisation, and will continue to have an oversight responsibility for the SSI.

The Sustainable Shipping Initiative is a coalition of shipping leaders from around the world that is taking practical steps to tackle some of the sector’s greatest opportunities and challenges including ABN AMRO, AkzoNobel, American Bureau of Shipping, Bunge, Cargill, China Navigation Company, IMC, Lloyd’s Register, Maersk Line, U-Ming Marine Transport Corporation and Wärtsilä.

In September 2013 the SSI became an independent charity. The SSI was initially facilitated by global sustainability non-profit Forum for the Future in conjunction with WWF, the global conservation NGO. Forum for the Future and WWF remain as SSI NGO members.
