UK shipping organisation pledges green focus
Helen Deeble, the new president of the UK Chamber of Shipping, has said that green initiatives will continue to be a focus for the organisation, although the sector’s stability is of “paramount importance”.
Ms Deeble acknowledged that carbon and sulphur emissions, anti-piracy measures, safety standards and industry training would continue to dominate as policy issues, and promised that “running through all the chamber’s work this year will be a true focus on the role of shipping and the maritime services cluster – and the benefits they bring to the UK economy”.
Ms Deeble, the first female leader of the organisation, is also chief executive of P&O Ferries.
