New List of Global Dumpers is Out
12 February 2015
The NGO Shipbreaking Platform, a global coalition of environmental and human rights organisations seeking to prevent dirty and dangerous shipbreaking worldwide, today releases a complete list of all ship owners and their ships sold for breaking last year. Out of a total of 1026 ships dismantled globally in 2014, 641 – representing 74% of the total gross tonnage (GT) scrapped – were sold to substandard facilities in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh where ships are dismantled directly on tidal beaches. None of the South Asian yards comply with international standards for safe and environmentally sound ship recycling.
