Climate change in shipping
Last week headlines around the world were dominated by the COP26 summit in Glasgow and statistics about greenhouse gases. Governments were making pledges whilst the biggest emitters, both countries and industries, were being singled out for criticism. Shipping is firmly in the sights of policy makers. Many would say rightly so as the world’s fleet of 100,000 vessels produces about three percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Law No. 236-FZ on Operation of Foreign Entities in the Internet in the Russian Federation has come into force since 1 July 2021. The new law has been non-officially called the “law on IT companies landing". Now all foreign companies whose activities in the Internet are aimed at Russia must formalize their presence in Russia.

It is no secret that the shipping market, like the tide, is cyclical - when demand exceeds supply, freight rates rise and when the reverse applies, the opposite is true.

However, a well organised company will already have been working towards this event, probably for at least three months and quite possibly for six or more.
WHERE TO LIST - SELECTING AN EXCHANGE
One of the first decisions a company contemplating a listing must make is where to list. Today there are literally hundreds of possible choices. Reputable exchanges exist all over the world and many exchanges now offer two or more possible markets each targeting slightly different participants and investors. This range of choice exists precisely because what is right for one company may not be for another. Although decisions must be tailored to your circumstances, the factors to consider are fairly standard and include the following:
In this three part series, Maxim Sobokarev, looks at the current and future impact of COVID-19 on the global mining sector and answers the question – might current conditions offer nimble companies a chance to steal a march on their competitors by planning for a listing? And, if they do, what should CEOs and CFOs be doing to capitalise on the opportunity?
Amid the global economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of the Russian Federation has put in place anti-crisis measures aimed at supporting business, including:
If you do business in other countries, it could be important to consider how Coronavirus disruption affects your business contracts. Clearly we are in unprecedented times and a lot of events, activities and parts of normal day to day life will be cancelled due to the Coronavirus.
