Singapore - Green Ship Programme extended
The Singapore Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) issued a shipping circular announcing that the Green Ship Programme has been extended to 31 December 2024.
This Circular serves to provide an update on the details of the Green Ship Programme (GSP) for Singapore-flagged ships. The GSP is one of the four programmes under the Maritime Singapore Green Initiative (MSGI). The key principle of the GSP is to reward ship owners who voluntarily adopt solutions that enable ships to exceed environmental regulatory standards mandated by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) at that point in time. The GSP commenced on 1 July 2011 and was valid until 30 June 2016. Due to positive feedback, the GSP was extended until 31 December 2019, and now it is further extended until 31 December 2024.
Members should get in touch with their usual Club contact with any queries.
