DNV launches new podcast series focused on shipping

DNV Maritime's inaugural podcast series provides must-know insights into global environmental regulations and their impact on the shipping industry.

DNV has launched a new podcast series which will, marking a first for the company via this format, cover topics that are challenging the shipping industry. The podcast will be embedded into DNV’s award-winning Maritime Impact content hub and available on all major podcast platforms, including Spotify and iTunes. 

Designed to inform busy shipping professionals, the podcast is published in a short and snackable 10-minute format. 

The first four episodes will explore the latest environmental policies and legislation impacting the global shipping industry. 

Host Eirik Nyhus, Director for Environment (Regulatory Affairs) for Maritime at DNV, provides insights on current greenhouse gas emission targets and the associated regulations from the International Maritime Organization (IMO). In the first episode, Eirik discusses the current regulatory landscape, why these changes are taking place and the additional pressures that shipping businesses are facing as the industry moves towards a decarbonized future. 

The remaining episodes will focus on the upcoming Maritime Environment Protection Committee 76 (MEPC 76), where significant regulatory decisions are set to be made which will dictate the industry’s approach to reducing its carbon impact. 

Following the first episode, Maritime Impact will provide a preview ahead of the MEPC 76 meeting before focusing on its outcomes in the final two episodes, with a specific focus on three key regulations: EEXI, SEEMP+ and CII. 

Podcast host Eirik Nyhus said: “Shipping regulation is constantly evolving, in line with the rapid action that needs to be taken across all industries to reduce carbon impact. This ever-changing landscape can make it very difficult for shipping professionals to keep track and understand what new regulations mean to them. Through this new podcast we aim to provide easily-digestible information - in plain and simple language – that will help ensure companies are well-prepared for changes that will impact on their operations.”
