Key executive from world's most sustainable transport system agrees to speak at Seatrade Sustainability Seminar

Singapore: The big name speakers keep rolling up for one of the highlights of this year's Maritime Week in Singapore, namely the inaugural Seatrade Sustainability Seminar. Dr Glenn Frommer, Sustainability Development Manager at Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway Corporation has agreed to speak, presenting tips for shipping from his firm, the world's most sustainable transportation system.
After his address a host of well known shipping executives will debate the broad topic of sustainability in shipping here on the morning of October 14, covering such hot topics as emissions, scrapping and corporate social responsibility.
Shipping may have been slower than other industries to recognise the importance of CSR but it is making up for lost time now. For the new generation of Greek owners, as much as for the more conservative Japanese shipping companies, 'ethical' is the new buzz word.
Our event, hosted by PSA Corporation, will be a round table debate chaired by Seatrade's Asia Editor Sam Chambers. Confirmed speakers include Mohammad Souri, chairman & ceo, NITC; Andreas Sohmen-Pao, md of BW Shipping; Jesper Praestensgaard, Chief Executive for Maersk Line Asia-Pacific; Koay Peng Yen, group ceo, IMC Corp; and Arthur Bowring, managing director of the Hong Kong Shipowners Association.
