Hi James,

Pls see MPA’s reply to your query below. Kindly attribute to MPA spokesperson. Thank you.

As a responsible member of the international maritime community, Singapore has been working closely with IMO and other countries to address the environmental impact of shipping. We recognise that shipping is an international business and we strongly support international measures implemented through the IMO and enforce these rigorously in Singapore. However, we also recognise that some companies, on their own initiative, do more than that mandated by the IMO in terms of going green.

To encourage companies who are ready or thinking about undertaking environmentally-friendly shipping practices which are above and beyond what is mandated by the IMO, MPA launched the Maritime Singapore Green Initiative. It is a comprehensive initiative with three programmes – the Green Ship Programme, the Green Port Programme and the Green Technology Programme.

MPA is very glad to work in close partnership with the industry on addressing the environmental challenges facing shipping. MPA received positive response on the participation in the Maritime Singapore Green Initiative. A total of 12 key organisations from across Maritime Singapore also signed the inaugural Maritime Singapore Green Pledge to pledge their commitment to promote and support clean and green shipping in Singapore.

The Green Port Programme, Green Ship Programme and Green Technology Programme will  be effective from 1 July 2011. Full details on the registration and procedures will be published on our MPA corporate website.
