MPA Kicks Off SRS Forum

30 maritime organisations signed the Maritime Singapore Green Pledge at the the 2nd Singapore Registry of Ships Forum (SRS Forum) organised by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). 

Since its launch in 2011, a total of 90 companies have signed the Green Pledge. Companies which have signed the Green Pledge employ an array of solutions in their efforts to go green, ranging from environmental management technology to green design initiatives for vessels and infrastructure.

MPA has used the SRS Forum to announce its collaboration with the Singapore Management University (SMU) to promote research and innovation for a clean and green Next Generation Port. MPA and SMU will collaborate on a number of areas, including Clean Energy and Environment, Energy Management, Simulation and Data Analytics for maritime applications.

The MOU extends beyond Research & Development and covers partnerships in education, public outreach programmes, as well as the provision of advisory services by SMU.

MPA Chief Executive Andrew Tan said: “Singapore is committed to promoting a maritime industry that is not only competitive but also efficient, responsible and sustainable. Today’s forum brings together the various stakeholders to discuss ways to leverage information and communications technologies to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of shipping and port operations. In this regard, we are pleased to collaborate with SMU to harness its strengths in environment and energy management, as well as data analytics to improve the efficiency and sustainability of our port.We are also pleased that 30 more companies have come on board to sign the Maritime Singapore Green Pledge since the scheme was launched. This is the largest group for a signing so far, and brings the total to 90 companies.”
