IMO and Port Authority of Singapore present the NextGEN web portal for the decarbonization of shipping

The aim of the initiative is to activate a greater collaboration between stakeholders

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the Authority Port of Singapore have created the web portal NextGEN, where GEN stands for Green and Efficient Navigation, with the aim of support and promote maritime sector initiatives aimed at the adoption of the next generation of fuels and low- and zero-carbon technologies. Purpose of the project is to bring together stakeholders in order to identify shortcomings and opportunities for decarbonisation of the international maritime transport sector. NextGEN is it was then developed with the aim of making it a means for the collaboration and reference portal to bring the different parties, including governments, ports, businesses and research institutes, which are involved in projects for the decarbonization of shipping, encouraging the sharing of information.

Recalling that the IMO's initial strategy for reduction of greenhouse gases, which was adopted in 2018, aims to cut emissions of these gases from transport international maritime by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008 levels, which will be updated by 2023, the CEO of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), Quah Ley Hoon, stressed that "there is no it can tackle decarbonisation on its own. We must - has explained - working together, beyond borders and value chain, to develop capabilities, share best practices and ensuring a level playing field for everybody. Bringing together ideas and stakeholders, NextGEN is based on on the key principle of inclusiveness'.

"The biggest challenge we have to face - he observed the Secretary General of the IMO, Kitack Lim - is the battle against global warming and change climatic. We need collaborative initiatives to accelerate research into emission reduction technology in the maritime sector and on marine fuels with low and zero emissions of carbon. Crucially, we need to make sure we don't leave no one back."
