Quote by Mr. Hor Weng Yew, Chairman, Singapore Maritime Foundation


“The maritime industry is responding to the call to be more sustainable across the value chain. Through the MaritimeONE Case Summit, students will be given the opportunity to participate in addressing sustainability challenges that often do not have textbook solutions. I thank CMA CGM, Rio Tinto and Swire Shipping/Swire Bulk for giving the students precious experiential learning opportunities.”

Quote by Mr. Laurent Olmeta, Chief Executive Officer, CMA CGM Asia Pacific

“As a global player in sea, land, air and logistics solutions, the CMA CGM Group is moving forward to becoming a Net Zero company by 2050. Our USD 1.5 billion Fund for Energies will accelerate the global energy transition. It supports innovations to decarbonise shipping and logistics. I am looking forward to seeing innovative solutions to be identified through the MaritimeONE Case Summit.”

Quote by Ms. Laure Baratgin, Head of Commercial Operations, Rio Tinto

“Rio Tinto is proud to partner with the Singapore Maritime Foundation on the MaritimeONE Case Summit, which is an excellent opportunity to expose students to the exciting and challenging opportunities the maritime industry faces today. Human sustainability – from safety and crew welfare, to diversity, equity and inclusivity – is critical to provide responsible shipping of our products and to attract the next generation of talent to the industry. We look forward to the curiosity and fresh ideas the students will bring to our Summit challenge, and potentially implement their perspectives to strengthen human sustainability in our business and the broader maritime industry.”

Quote by Ms. Susana Germino, General Manager, Sustainability and Decarbonisation, Swire Shipping & Swire Bulk

“The maritime sector has a vital role to play in the global challenge that is climate change. Energy efficiency and optimisation are key to our decarbonisation strategy, both short and long term, and we will continuously strive to seek new and innovative ways to minimize the impact of our businesses on the environment. Swire Shipping and Swire Bulk are proud to sponsor the MaritimeOne Case Summit and we look forward to collaborating and inspiring the next generation of exciting young talents on initiatives that will make a difference to maritime decarbonisation.”
