The Denmark-headquartered company has been changing the way end-of-life vessels are recycled in India through a robust, responsible, and transparent ship recycling programme led by Capt. Widge. The programme has been implemented at 6 yards in Alang where 14 vessels been responsibly recycled so far. As a part of the programme, it has also been ensured that the recycling is done with no serious safety or environmental incidents and Maersk has incentivised the building of over 1200-worker ILO-compliant dormitories. It was key to verify that the engaged workers earned the requisite minimum and overtime wages with insurance and retiral benefits, access to compensation, leave and holiday benefits, in line with the applicable legislation.
