Age discrimination is no joke and can affect individuals of all ages in any field of work, including the shipping industry. It can lead to decreased motivation and increased sickness and can compromise cohesive and effective teamwork. It can also negatively affect companies resulting in potential organisational, economic and legal consequences. These new guidelines will help ship operators understand the different types of age discrimination, whether direct or indirect, and show how this can be avoided with respect to recruitment, training, pay and promotion, as well as redundancy and retirement.

The International Safety Management (ISM) Code is a key mandatory requirement for merchant ships, critical to the improvement of maritime safety and environmental performance.

The maritime transport sector is consistently improving its environmental performance through global environmental measures adopted by the International Maritime Organization to: promote health and wellbeing; address impacts on the ocean and marine ecosystems; and substantially reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The global shipping industry takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously and to highlight the various initiatives adopted for compliance with global environmental regulations, ICS is producing a series of ‘single-issue’ brochures under a common theme: ‘Global Shipping - Investing in Sustainable Development’. This first brochure of the series focuses on the ‘The Switch to Low Sulphur Fuel’, outlining the reasons for adoption and implementation of the IMO global sulphur cap regulation; the health and environmental benefits; and the need for collaborative initiatives between all actors in the maritime logistics chain, to effectively contribute towards the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
