A.P Moller-Maersk

Maersk's response to UN on alleged transboundary movement of end-of-life ship

In October 2017, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Toxics...made an official visit to Denmark...during which he held a meeting with A.P Moller-Maersk(APMM)...on the issue of ship-recycling. During this meeting, the Special Rapporteur requested information about the sale of the North Sea Producer (NSP). The NSP was owned by a separate legal entity, North Sea Production Company Limited (NSPCL). However...because NSPCL as a separate entity was solely responsible for the sale of NSP. With reference to the query regarding indentification of the buyer, it is important to be clear that the UK environmental authorities had full knowledge of the identity of the buyer. However...confidentiality provisions in the sale contract between NSPCL and the buyer prevented NSPCL from publicly disclosing the buyer's identity. The sale of the NSP was conducted by NSPCL in accordance with the principles of the two shareholders...please kindly refer to the response by NSPCL in annex A.
