Established by the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) and supported by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), the panel will explore decarbonisation strategies, policies and actions to be taken by the local maritime sector, in line with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2050 target to reduce total annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping by at least 50%.

It comprised leaders from shipping companies, port operators, academia, class societies, insurance and finance players, energy companies, engine makers, shipyards, shipping associations, and the government. IAP is chaired by SMF chairman Andreas SohmenPao.

Wong is currently the chairman of the Singapore Maritime Institute’s Board and Governing Council and a member of the WSH2028 Tripartite Strategy Committee, where he chairs the Work Group on Workplace Safety and Health. He also serves as chairman of the Singapore Institute of Technology-Newcastle University (SIT-NU) Industry Advisory Committee for joint-degree programmes in marine engineering, naval architecture and offshore engineering, and sits on the Industry Advisory Panel of the Nanyang Technological University School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
