Industry leaders converge in Singapore to build out zero emissions maritime transport

Hing Chao, the visionary Executive Chairman of Wah Kwong Maritime Transport Holdings, will join a panel of maritime industry leaders at the upcoming ShipZERO28.5 event in Singapore on April 18. Mr. Chao’s insights and leadership in sustainable shipping practices will help illuminate the necessary path forward for the maritime industry in a challenging moment of instability.

Mr. Chao said: “Decarbonization is a global, collective effort. However, as resources are unevenly distributed, synergistic partnerships across geographical regions are essential to decarbonisation and, in particular, to reaching zero-emission goals within a rapidly closing window.”
Under Mr. Chao’s stewardship, Wah Kwong is embarking on a journey towards sustainability and zero emissions. Demonstrating this commitment, Wah Kwong is exploring and investing in technological innovations and partnerships that reduce environmental impact and demonstrate cleaner shipping practices.

Madadh MacLaine, Secretary-General, ZESTAs said: “As the maritime sector experiences unprecedented challenges on both environmental and geo-political fronts, we need visionaries like Hing Chao to drive change. By transitioning away from fossil fuels we can win this battle. We have the technology, as evidenced in ZESTAs latest submission to the IMO. Our mission in Singapore is to create a blueprint , with Chairman Chao and other senior industry stakeholders, for international cross sector collaboration to build out the necessary zero emissions infrastructure across all fronts.”

At ShipZERO28.5, taking place during Singapore Maritime Week, workshop participants will discuss challenges and brainstorm solutions that set a course to a zero-emissions future for shipping. ZESTAs continues to bring together technology providers, policy makers, and the entire energy supply chain, creating a comprehensive action plan to support the maritime industry’s transition to zero emissions. As the 5th workshop in the ZESTAs ShipZERO programme, this event will deliver a platform for concrete action.
Wah Kwong Maritime Transport Holdings are Gold Sponsor’s for ShipZERO28.5. Their support furthers the collective effort and commitment of leading maritime organisations in advancing the industry’s sustainability goals.
