The NGO Platform on Shipbreaking (Platform) is a global coalition of human rights, environmental and labour rights groups that work to expose and prevent the illegal export of end-of-life ships containing hazardous substances from western countries to scrapping yards in
Asia. The NGO Platform also campaigns for the safe and
environmentally sound disposal of such vessels.
SRT has supported the NGO Platform since 2007.
