The Maritime Port Authority of Singapore on Wednesday (3 February) announced the Port of Singapore has been recognised as an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Port Services Network (APSN) Green Port in 2020.
This is the third consecutive time that MPA has received the accolade since it was launched in 2016.
The Green Port Award System (GPAS) programme is a green evaluation system for ports in the APEC region developed by APSN with the endorsement of the APEC forum. The programme promotes the sustainable development of ports in the Asia-Pacific region.
MPA noted this accolade affirms its efforts on decarbonisation. MPA had undertaken a series of sustainability initiatives in 2020 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Port of Singapore.
Notably, MPA had established a SGD 40 million Maritime Green Future Fund for research, testing and adoption of low-carbon technologies last year. MPA also embarked on efforts to enable the Port of Singapore to supply liquified natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel.
In addition, MPA established the Future Fuels Port Network with international partners to collectively drive the research and development of clean marine fuels across participating ports in support of industry decarbonisation.
“MPA would like to thank APSN for recognising our efforts in championing sustainable port activities. In Singapore, we see opportunities to grow the industry in a greener and more sustainable way,” said Quah Ley Hoon, Chief Executive of MPA.
“We will continue to work closely with our stakeholders and partners, to reduce the impact of port activities on the environment.”
