NGO Platform – List of all ships dismantled over the world in 2015


Abstract

For several years now, the NGO Shipbreaking Platform, a global coalition of non-governmental organisations demanding safer and cleaner ship recycling worldwide, has been compiling a list of all end-of-life ships sent for breaking every year.
Of the 768 large ocean-going vessels that were scrapped in 2015, 469 were broken on the beaches of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh where shipbreaking yards do not provide fundamental labour rights, ignore international waste trade law, and fail to respect international environmental protection standards.
