The Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI), a coalition of companies from across the global shipping industry, announced the appointment of Tom Holmer as its new general manager.

 
Holmer comes from a background of social sustainability, working for the benefit of seafarers and their families with the International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) and the ITF Seafarers’ Trust, as well as conducting consultancy work on sustainability issues in the transport sector with Public World.
 
He will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the SSI, delivering continued progress against the objectives of the SSI’s Roadmap to develop a more sustainable shipping industry by 2040, and making sure the organization remains a strong voice for the shipping industry in ensuring it achieves global sustainability targets. The board of trustees continues to have oversight responsibility for the SSI, and will work with Holmer to ensure that the SSI, and its members continue to engage with the industry and build momentum towards a more sustainable future for shipping.
