We are heartened to see the encouraging response from maritime companies to the Maritime Singapore Green Initiative and are pleased to see more maritime companies coming forward to sign the Maritime Singapore Green Pledge.

WWL recently joined 14 other classification societies and shipping lines in signing the Maritime Singapore Green Pledge. A total of 28 organisations have signed the Green Pledge, which requires members to act as responsible representatives of the international maritime community by supporting and promoting clean, green shipping in Singapore.

“This shows that more companies are making environmental thinking part of their business strategy, thereby giving them a competitive advantage,” says Jane Krishna, Head of WWL’s Singapore Branch.

The signing of the Green Pledge was facilitated by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), witnessed by Mr Choi Shing Kwok, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transport, Mr Lucien Wong, Chairman of MPA and Mr Lam Yi Young, Chief Executive of MPA. 

"We are heartened to see the encouraging response from maritime companies to the Maritime Singapore Green Initiative and are pleased to see more maritime companies coming forward to sign the Maritime Singapore Green Pledge," said Mr Lam Yi Young.
