KUANTAN: Kuantan Port Consortium Sdn Bhd has introduced the Kuantan Port Green Policy to promote environmental sustainability and guide port development and operations from 2021 to 2030.
The green policy was launched by Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, who visited Kuantan Port on Sunday (Jan 16).
“Under this Green Policy, digitalisation and energy efficiency are key strategies in line with the Government’s National Transport Policy to maintain the ecosystem affected by the port and reduce carbon emissions by 30%,” Dr Wee said in a Facebook post on Sunday.
The MCA president added that these efforts would entail technology investments such as hybrid rubber-tyred gantries, reducing vehicle traffic, using more renewable energy and installing more automation within the port.
Also present during the launch were Pahang Works, Transport and Health Committee chairman Datuk Seri Norolazali Sulaiman, Kuantan Port Authority (KPA) chairman Tan Sri Tengku Azlan Ibni Sultan Abu Bakar, deputy chairman Quek Tai Seong, general manager Datuk Khairul Anuar Abdul Rahman, IJM CEO and general manager Liew Hau Seng, Beibu deputy general manager Lu Yong and Kuantan Port chief operating officer Mazlim Husin.
