AET Highlights January 2023

CEO’s Message

I would like to wish our valued customers, business partners and stakeholders a successful and wonderful 2023 on behalf of AET and the MISC Group. Let us continue to focus in 2023 on building strong partnerships and drive collaboration to accelerate the industry’s energy transition.

The end of 2022 was dedicated to engaging and connecting with our stakeholders — allowing us to participate in meaningful discussions that help to further align our stakeholders’ and our sustainability goals as we progress in 2023 and beyond.

We also continued giving back to the communities where we operate. Across our offices from London, Houston and Galveston to Rio and Singapore, our colleagues participated in our annual beach clean-ups as part of our support to protect life below water while promoting awareness among colleagues and their families to become more conscious of their overall consumption and act responsibly.

Furthermore, our colleagues in London and Singapore volunteered at local non-profit organisations such as The Felix Project and Singapore Children’s Society to lend a helping hand to families and youths in need.

We kickstarted 2023 with the successful relocation of our Rio office to the Centro Empresarial Mario Henrique Simonsen at the Barra da Tijuca business district. This new location allows AET and the MISC Group to engage with our customers and key stakeholders from one location to support the industry’s growth in Latin America while collaborating to further accelerate maritime sustainability.

I look forward to meeting many of you in 2023!

Best regards,
Capt. Rajalingam Subramaniam
AET President & CEO and MISC President & Group CEO


Engaging our Stakeholders

As a leader in sustainable shipping, stakeholder engagement is a critical pillar of our sustainability strategy.

We had the privilege to host more in-person stakeholder events including Houston Golf Day and most recently a reception and dinner which brought together stakeholders from the US and Europe who were joined by our Board members, Executive Leadership Team and colleagues from Houston, London, Rio and Singapore. The gathering saw lively discussions and conversations with many getting together for the first time since the pandemic.

Partnerships remain key for AET and the MISC Group and we look forward to continue working closely with like-minded stakeholders to collaborate on win-win solutions towards maritime sustainability.

Committed to Protecting Life Below Water 
AET colleagues and their families across our offices in the US, the UK, Singapore and Brazil volunteered in our annual beach clean-up. Aside from helping to remove trash and marine debris from coastal shorelines, our beach clean-ups promote awareness among our staff to become more conscious of their overall consumption while encouraging them and the communities we live in to act responsibly.

In total, an estimate of 178kg of trash was collected including single-use plastics, foam pieces, masks, gloves, cigarette butts, fishing lines, nets and many more.

This initiative forms an integral part of our sustainability strategy as it marks our commitment to care for the environment and supports the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14 – Life Below Water which we subscribe to.

We remain strongly committed to build a better world by supporting communities where we operate.

Our Rio office has moved

With our growing presence in Latin America, our office has relocated to the Centro Empresarial Mario Henrique Simonsen at the Barra da Tijuca business district. This new location allows AET, Eaglestar and the MISC Offshore Business Unit teams to engage with our customers and key stakeholders from one location supporting the industry’s growth in Latin America.

We look forward to welcoming you in our new office.

Volunteering during the Holiday Season
Last December, AET has partnered with Singapore Children’s Society once again to organise a cooking workshop to encourage their residents to make healthy food choices and equip them with basic cooking skills. Youths aged 12-18 years old teamed up with our colleagues and learned how to prepare three healthy dishes guided by the chefs in a kitchen studio. AET has been supporting Singapore Children’s Society and its aim to protect and nurture children and youths’ welfare and needs since 2019.

During the season of giving, our team in London also volunteered again with The Felix Project to help organise donated food items which will be delivered to charities and their beneficiaries for the holidays.

These initiatives and more are part of our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals which we endorse — Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, and Reducing Inequalities.
