ITOPF managing director Dr Karen Purnell joins the Lloyd’s List Sustainability Editor Anastassios Adamopoulos to explain why oil spills from tankers have declined so much and what impact all those containers that are lost at sea could really have.

It is a very good podcast and discusses how oil spills have changed as procedures, processes and management of hazardous cargos have improved through collective international action. It also highlights how ITOPF is fined and works to provide support to governments, authorities and those affected by incidents

This 17 minute interview also discusses container losses which ITOPF have also been involved with.
