Its members are leading companies from around the world and NGOs Forum for the Future and WWF. The cross-industry group represents ship owners and charterers, shipbuilders, engineers and service providers, banking, insurance, and classification societies.
Objectives Bringing together leading companies in the maritime sector to create a sustainable and

successful shipping industry by 2040.

Activities Looking ahead the SSI strategy will focus on three activities:

1.Promoting individual leadership through nearer-term commitments and sharing individual action and performance widely. 2.Innovation platforms that seek to tackle existing barriers in partnership with others and also identify new areas that present risks and opportunities for the industry. 3.Becoming the progressive voice for the industry and scaling up the great solutions that already exist through media and communications activities
