About this book

This volume brings together multiple perspectives on both the changing Arctic environment and the challenges and opportunities it presents for the shipping sector. It argues for the adoption of a forward-looking agenda that respects the fragile and changing Arctic frontier. With the accelerated interest in and potential for new maritime trade routes, commercial transportation and natural resource development, the pressures on the changing Arctic marine environment will only increase. The International Maritime Organization Polar Code is an important step toward Arctic stewardship. This new volume serves as an important guide to this rapidly developing agenda. Addressing a range of aspects, it offers a valuable resource for academics, practitioners, environmentalists and affected authorities in the shipping industry alike.


Reviews

“This book can be useful to academics and educators, corporate sustainability professionals, government decision makers, investors, and philanthropists. It can serve as a reference book as well as a textbook. I highly recommend it to any reader who has an interest in marine science and specifically in maritime Arctic shipping.” (Christian T. K.-H. Stadtländer, Frontiers in Marine Science, Vol. 6, January 15, 2020)
