Programme Director, Lloyd's Register Maritime Decarbonisation Hub
Charles Haskell is the Programme Director of the Lloyd's Register (LR) Maritime Decarbonisation Hub.
Charles joined Lloyd's Register (LR) in 2001 and worked in various ship repair and new construction yards in UK, France and Poland before working in South Korea on a number of projects for container ships, tankers, and LNG carriers. Following this he moved to the Middle East, conducting audits and in-service surveys. He then transitioned into client management and led the Middle East and Africa business development team, before returning to the UK to resume a similar role as business development manager for LR's Marine and Offshore business, where he worked with several clients on zero-emission projects that spurred his passion to work more on helping shipping achieve the IMO 2050 ambitions.
In 2020, under Charles Haskell’s leadership, the LR Maritime Decarbonisation Hub was established with the mission to accelerate the sustainable decarbonisation of the maritime industry by enabling the delivery and operation of safe, technically feasible and commercially viable zero-emission vessels.
