Class has an important role to play to support owners and offshore operators on sustainability over the next decade. If environmental regulation from IMO and national governments continue to drive the agenda, and uncertainty abounds, 2020 also marked a turning point in owner engagement on decarbonization.

We look forward to contributing to the industry’s transformation journey as well as supporting our clients in their specific challenges and ambitions.
