About the SSI
Bringing together leading maritime companies from around the world

The Sustainable Shipping Initiative is an independent charity, comprised of ambitious leaders spanning the whole shipping value chain from charterers and ship owners, to ship yards, class societies and technology companies whose common objective is to make sustainability mainstream. The SSI works with its members and other shipping stakeholders to create a more environmentally responsible, socially conscious, safer, accountable, and more economically profitable industry. One that is truly sustainable by 2040, as outlined in our Vision.
