Salalah sets higher targets for less CO2

Industry Database

Having achieved a 10% reduction in CO2 emissions in the last year, the Omani Port of Salaah plans to extend the scheme.

Chief Executive Officer, Peter Ford, said, "Last year, we eliminated ten per cent of our CO2 emissions with an investment project on our equipment, and this year, I expect the port to start a project that will take another 50 per cent out by next year."

He added, ‘‘The increased investment in new equipment has had a positive impact on bringing down the port's overall emissions, and plans were underway on determining how to improve upon this success’. "As Oman's largest port, you can see that our commitment to the environment takes many forms. We prepare in case our neighbours or customers have an accident, and, at the same time, we reduce our own levels of waste."
