Why you should join:

Together we are creating positive, tangible and long lasting change in the industry. As a member you will be working actively with an exclusive group of industry leaders to shape the future of shipping.

You and your organisation will play a key role in promoting the understanding of, and engagement in, strategic sustainability opportunities and addressing the risks for the industry and its stakeholders. The SSI is increasingly becoming the voice for sustainability of the industry.

Membership of the SSI offers you:

  • Access to other leaders in the industry, up and down the shipping value chain, in a safe-space for close collaboration and networking
  • The value of participating actively in the working group(s) of your choice, helping you solve complex problems you might not be able to address alone

  • An enhanced reputation as a leader in the industry and association with a high profile, global initiative
  • Opportunities, through working group participation, to shape and support practical action aimed at re-defining key elements of the shipping industry
  • Support, advice and encouragement from two strong NGOs each with decades of experience which they actively share with the members of SSI

"The SSI is an outstanding example of the mobilisation of an entire industry sector, shipping. There hasn't been much pressure on this sector in the past, but they've helped shine a spotlight and bring together major players onto one platform. Several years ago, this kind of work was foreign territory. The work SSI is doing is absolutely pioneering."
