Kuantan Port received its first Green Port Award under the Green Port Award System (GPAS) program from the APEC Port Service Network.
The GPAS is a green port evaluation system for ports in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) region that evaluates green initiatives developed by the ports industry within the APEC region. It is also intended to encourage port-related industries to expand and manage their businesses in a more environmentally friendly manner.
Kuantan Port has embarked on various green port initiatives, including shore power supply, solar energy conversion, LED lighting for high masts, and replacing diesel-powered machinery with hybrid-powered engines, to name a few. This recognition indicates that Kuantan Port is on track to achieve Green Port status by 2030.
