Turning these ships into skyscrapers puts thousands of lives at risk

Not good enough

To make things better, you have to challenge the things that aren't good enough. Yet. See what we’re doing to make a difference in your world, the financial world and the world at large.

Because we’re not here for good enough, we’re Here for good.

Thousands of shipbreakers risk their lives to earn a living.

Every week, one worker dies from the dangerous job of breaking ships. And that's not good enough. Which is why we're working with shipyard owners in Bangladesh to change how things are done in the industry. So it's safer for workers, cleaner for the environment, and better for the families and communities that depend on them. 

SHIPBREAKING We're working from within to change what's out there.
