Human rights and ship recycling

In February 2018, two United Nations human rights experts invited A.P. Moller - Maersk to share our perspective on human rights in ship recycling including the sale in 2016 of the North Sea Producer, a vessel that was owned by a joint venture in which Maersk had a 50% shareholding.
