DK now included in the UN convention on scrapping
As the seventh country in the world, Denmark has joined the Hong Kong Convention, which aims to ensure more environmentally safe and safe scrapping of old ships. But the convention only goes into force when 15 countries, representing 40 percent of the gross merchant navy of the global trading fleet have joined.
"With Denmark's accession, we send a strong signal to other countries that it is important to prioritize the proper scrapping of ships. The more countries that join, the sooner the convention can go into force. India has reported, for example, that they are ready to join when the EU countries have acceded to the convention," says Minister of Environment and Food Esben Lunde Larsen.
