A national workshop is being held in Johor, Malaysia on “MARPOL Annex VI and Technology Transfer” to raise awareness of IMO’s energy efficiency measures and the control of GHG emissions from ships. A wide range of stakeholders have convened for the three-day workshop, ranging from ministries of transport, environment, maritime administrations, ports, universities, maritime training centres, and professional associations with an interest in preserving the marine environment.

The workshop, which is co-hosted by the Marine Department Malaysia and Johor Port Authority, included an excursion to the container terminal of the Port of Tanjung Pelepas, where participants learnt about the port’s energy efficiency initiatives and green policy.
