Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

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

Author: A.P Moller-Maersk, Published on: 24 May 2018

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.
