SEAaT Welcomes New Associates

Thursday, June 30, 2011

SEAaT (Shipping Emissions Abatement and Trading) announced today that international legal practice Norton Rose LLP and the freight services division of global mining group Rio Tinto have become its newest associate members.

Norton Rose LLP has had shipping at its core throughout its 200-year history, and is home to one of the world’s leading transport legal practices. Norton Rose LLP has over 100 specialist shipping lawyers across the globe, providing all the services needed by today’s sophisticated and highly regulated shipping companies. Importantly for SEAaT, Norton Rose LLP also has a leading climate change practice and provides regulatory advice and transactional work on issues such as carbon trading.

Rio Tinto Marine provides freight and solutions for Rio Tinto to ensure optimization of mine-to-market supply chain efficiency.  Headquartered in Melbourne, the division has one of the largest dry bulk cargo books in the world.

These high-profile corporations have joined SEAaT just as the shipping industry prepares for a pivotal few months in the lead up to the IMO MEPC 62 London meeting in July, when emissions abatement will be on the top of government agendas.
