Sustainability classification for vessels

To get a complete picture of a vessel or a shipping company's role in sustainable development, there is currently no comprehensive tool, but many initiatives. A major challenge is to renew the use of sustainability indices for individual vessels, based on the evaluation of shipping in a larger perspective. To evaluate and find indicators of social aspects, particularly the working environment and working conditions in shipping is a less developed part of the sustainability issues. A good working environment, both from the individual's health perspective as well as a system perspective where it is vital that it is 'easy to do right', are crucial in the efforts to reduce the environmental impact of vessels.
