Numerous organizations are embedding environmental, social, and governance factors into business strategies that have greatly affected the U.S. inland waterway sector. What are the current market drivers for sustainability? How are organizations preparing to decarbonize their fleets?

These were just some of the questions that were addressed during the Sustainability in the U.S. Inland Waterway Market session that took place at December's International Workboat Show. Dhaval Mehta and Stergios Stamopoulus of ABS took part in the session, so we caught up with them to find out how they answered these questions, what insights from the session were most striking to them and much more.
