The Maersk Group will commit to helping the highly contended scrapping yards on the beaches of Alang in India by upgrading the facilities which will also live up to Maersk's own goals for responsible scrapping, the group writes in a press release Thursday.

"We want to play a role in ensuring that responsible recycling becomes a reality in Alang, India. To find sustainable solutions, we are working on building a broader coalition with other ship owners and have initiated engagement with a number of carefully selected yards in Alang. This includes improving local waste facilities and hospitals - and upgrading the housing conditions for the migrant workers in Alang," says Annette Stube, Head of Sustainability at Maersk Group.
