Topic description:

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on a range of industries, including shipping. We have seen factories in parts of the world slow down and supply chains have been severely impacted. But as we recover from the effects of the pandemic we must look to seize the opportunities for the future.

As we look to reset and recover Covid, it is vital that the shipping industry doesn’t lose sight of its environmental responsibilities. We must use the opportunity in front of us to lay the foundations for a green recovery.
