Sustainability Quarterly - October 2022
We are pleased to bring you the latest issue of our regular sustainability focussed magazine which, as always, explores recent innovation, brings you insight into industry-shaping progress, and examines the most recent legislation.
In this issue, we feature a write up of the most recent in our sustainability webinar series. This session, led by Sebastian Mikosz, IATA's SVP for Environment and Sustainability, looks at the main issues faced by the aviation sector on the road to decarbonisation, including the scarcity of non-conventional fuel, the importance of agreeing global long-term goals, and why reducing plastic waste is essential.
A fascinating interview with Maersk's Global Air Freight Sustainability Manager Amit Agarwal reveals more about the need for investment into sustainable air fuel, how consistency and collaboration are key, and why he remains positive about future growth in the face of challenges still to overcome.
The Mission to Seafarers is an organisation which provides support and welfare to the 1.5 million people worldwide who work at sea and is one of HFW's global charity partners. We hear from Maurizio Borgatti, its Head of Corporate Partnerships, about the work the charity does in helping those working in dangerous, and often isolated conditions on global waters.
As well as our regular insight into the most significant legal updates, we also hear from Odfjell SE's Chief Sustainability Officer, Øistein Jensen, about climate related risk and threats, as well as learning about how best to embrace climate adaption opportunities from meteorologist and climatologist Dr Bruce Buckley. Finally, we have a round-up of our latest sustainability initiatives and news from our offices.
We love to hear from you, so if you have feedback about this edition, or further questions about our sustainability expertise, please contact me, or one of the Group Leads or Legal Services Heads.
