Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore has reviewed and enhanced the Green Port Programme (GPP) Initiative with several changes. GPP is one of the programmes under the Maritime Singapore Green Initiative (MSGI) to encourage environmental sustainability amongst ocean-going vessels calling at the Port of Singapore and MPA licensed harbour craft by providing port dues reduction.
Changes to the Green Port Programme
The GPP programme will be enhanced for vessels calling at the Port of Singapore taking into consideration the updated IMO Phase 3 Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) requirement. The applicable port dues reduction will apply to vessels that use zero carbon fuel in the Port of Singapore, vessels that use low carbon fuel in the Port of Singapore, and vessels whose EEDI reduction exceeds the IMO Phase 3 EEDI requirement by 10% or more.
To participate in the GPP, shipowners/charterers should ensure that their vessels are pre-registered under the GPP prior to calling at the Port of Singapore.
