The Council of the APSN recognized the high calibre and excellent environmental actions and leadership demonstrated by all recipients. As one of the winners, HPT’s efforts exemplify the commitments and contributions to environmental responsibility and a more sustainable maritime industry.
“Sustainable and green development is an ongoing effort, and we are delighted to be recognised for our progress in these areas with this award. This is in recognition of the environmental actions and high calibre of leadership demonstrated by our employees and partners and demonstrates our commitment to the continued sustainable development of the industry.” Mr Stephen Ashworth, the Managing Director of Thailand and South East Asia, Hutchison Ports, said.
Since 2019, the company has formed the Group Sustainability Committee (GSC) and delivered an annual business plan of initiatives. HPT has made many accomplishments throughout the years including Greenhouse Gas Reduction, Waste Reduction, and developed HPT GO GREEN project together with the Faculty of International Maritime Studies of Kasetsart University Sriracha Campus.
In addition, the company deployed the hybrid system, main engine is electricity and use diesel engine as a generator, for remoted-controlled cranes. Together with the operations of the autonomous trucks fleet which are fully electric-powered, the company succeeded in reducing 50 percent of carbon emissions in cargo handling operations.
Moving forward, HPT will continue its commitment to being a Green Terminal. By the end of this year, the company plans to introduce a new fleet of electric trailers which will be added to the electric-powered equipment already in operation at the terminal, such as remote-controlled cranes and autonomous trucks. Moreover, with the development of Gate Automation and the enhancement of HPT’s digital platform and application, the company can provide better customer service at all HPT terminals while reducing the use of paper during the documentation process.
