Stolthaven Singapore chose an eco-friendly way to commemorate Singapore's National Day on August 9: a coastal clean-up of the area around the terminal.
A group of 14 colleagues took part in the initiative to collect litter and debris – which had washed up on the shoreline surrounding their facility – to help preserve the natural beauty of the area and safeguard the local vegetation and marine life.
By the end of the day, 120 kg of rubbish had been collected, categorised and bagged into recyclables and general waste. The terminal teamed up with a waste management service whose solar-powered facility specialises in processing recyclable materials and giving them a new life.
“Stolthaven Singapore is committed to supporting the business’s global sustainability agenda, including caring for our local environment,” said Ravi Ramesh Dodani, the terminal’s Maintenance, Reliability and Integrity Engineer and regional sustainability lead. “Employees were really keen to do their part to preserve our beautiful coastline and help build a greener, cleaner future for our local community.”
Chek Chai Foo, General Manager, Stolthaven Singapore, added: “Many thanks to everyone who participated in this sustainability initiative to help protect our precious marine environment, especially Ravi and our SHEQ department for organising it and making sure it was conducted safely.”
