A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO

Working together to achieve our goals

We have an obligation to drive change using our data. From decarbonisation to future fuels and land-based fuel infrastructure – this is a trillion-dollar exercise. There is an enormously heavy pull towards a zero-carbon maritime economy, and RightShip has the data and expertise to play a significant role in this.

A consistent theme in the DNA of RightShip is the power of collaboration. To achieve lasting success, RightShip must work not only as a united team, but in close cooperation with individuals, maritime businesses, associations and governments. With a shared vision, we can achieve our safety, sustainability and human rights targets."

Steen Brodsgaard Lund

Chief Executive Officer, RightShip

RIGHTSHIP'S MISSION

To set the global benchmark for maritime efficiency, safety and sustainability practices with a social conscience

We’re not just about reducing emissions and improving operational efficiency. We seek to provide all people in the supply chain with safe and practical business solutions, so that the industry can continue to thrive.

By working to achieve safety, sustainability and socially responsible practices across the supply chain, we can work together to drive significant industry change. That’s the RightShip way.

Giving back

RightShip is committed to setting global benchmarks in the maritime sector.

Alongside our mission to make our seas safer and minimise the environmental impact of international shipping, we believe we make a difference by supporting not-for-profit maritime organisations, including those that work towards improving the wellbeing of seafarers.

We provide each office with their own charity budget to support local initiatives and involve our staff in community outreach programs. RightShip has several charity partnerships with organisations including the Mission to Seafarers and Human Rights at Sea.

Committed to carbon reduction

Complementing our vision of a zero-emissions maritime industry, RightShip actively works to minimise emissions across all offices.

While we aim for zero as an organisation, we offset our annual emission through the purchase of carbon credits. This includes our energy bill, international flights and employee travel to and from work.

RightShip provides carbon offset sponsorship of selected maritime industry events, working with organisers to take responsibility for emissions associated with the event and demonstrate climate change leadership.

OUR HISTORY

Working towards a zero-incident, zero-emissions industry since 1991

Our story

Between 1988 and 1991, nearly 100 seafarers were lost on large bulk carriers, mostly off the coast of Western Australia. These tragic events were the result of avoidable industry practices.   The ensuing ‘Ships of Shame’ report shone a spotlight on an urgent need to improve industry standards.

RightShip was formed in Melbourne in 2001, with BHP Freight and Rio Tinto committing to deliver an industry standard that all maritime workers could commit to.

The program was rolled out across all BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto assets globally, at which point it was essential to open a US-based office. In 2006 Cargil joined as an equal partner shareholder and by 2007, UK and European offices had been established.

As RightShip has evolved, it has added a key sustainability focus. The team developed the Greenhouse Gas Emission Rating (GHG Rating) to measure the carbon dioxide output of vessels.

RightShip developed its class-leading RightShip Qi digital platform in 2016. It’s an innovation that has been widely praised and adopted.

RightShip is helmed by CEO Steen Brodsgaard Lund, who brings more than 30 years of maritime experience to his role. He is supported by more than 80 staff worldwide and is particularly focused on digital innovation that can in turn deliver improvements in safety, sustainability and human rights.
