Sustainability in spotlight as RINA signs up as LISW23 Platinum Sponsor


Improving the quality of life and building sustainable values for future generations in shipping will be highlighted during this year’s London International Shipping Week by RINA, which has come onboard as a Platinum Sponsor to support the event in its 10th year.

RINA is a founding member of IACS (the International Association of Classification Societies) and operates on behalf of 122 flag authorities. In addition to the provision of classification and statutory certification RINA delivers value added services to the shipping industry and is rated among the top performing classification societies.

RINA’s technical competence, attention to quality, and focus on innovation are the pillars which enable the society to support shipping on its path to digital transformation and to achieve reductions in CO2. RINA works with designers to verify compliance with the applicable rules of dual-fuel vessels and of novel concept designs incorporating new fuels such as hydrogen or ammonia, allowing for an increase in efficiency and performance which equates to fewer emissions.

Paolo Moretti, CEO of RINA Services, said: “At RINA we engage in partnering with customers to develop solutions to complex problems, while leveraging our expertise to anticipate and address any challenges along the way. Being part of London International Shipping Week will give us the opportunity to communicate with a large international audience and to engage in high-level discussions about the future of shipping and sustainable growth.”

Sean Moloney, co-owner and co-founder of LISW, welcomed RINA as an event sponsor. “We are delighted to have RINA onboard and look forward to understanding more about the work it does to deliver solutions that improve the wellbeing of society and build sustainable values for future generations,” he said.
