Driving sustainability amidst the global reset

Our President & CEO Capt. Rajalingam Subramaniam participated at the 12th Annual Marine Money London Virtual Ship Finance Forum on 27 January in the session on Shipping success stories from 2020 covering the topic of “Sustainability focus at the heart of the global reset”. He shared about the accelerated global reset due to the “Double Black Swan”, how this further propelled the ESG momentum across the globe and that ESG is already an integral part of the MISC Group, including AET’s sustainability strategy.

While we remain aligned with the IMO 2030 and 2050 targets, he stressed the importance for all players to do more and drive sustainability across the entire maritime value chain. The industry’s focus has now evolved towards a more holistic ESG approach beyond traditional HSSE, requiring organisations to deliver on the overall social agenda including diversity & inclusion, talent development and social inequality causes, as well as governance which goes also beyond just legislative compliance.

Embracing this global trend, AET remains committed to move energy in a responsible, sustainable and eco-efficient way that contributes towards a resilient maritime industry and reduces our and our customers’ carbon footprint.
