ASLET’s Mission For Maritime Sustainability


Australia and Singapore, two key players in the maritime sector, have joined forces in a groundbreaking $20 million initiative to drive emissions reduction in maritime operations. The Australia-Singapore Initiative on Low Emissions Technologies (ASLET) is set to revolutionize the industry by leveraging the expertise of CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). This strategic partnership underscores the commitment of both nations to combat climate change and foster sustainable maritime practices.

Key Features

  1. A Strategic Partnership for Sustainability: ASLET, a collaborative effort between CSIRO and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), represents a strategic partnership focused on driving innovation and sustainability in maritime and port operations. With a shared commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, Australia and Singapore are leveraging their respective strengths to lead the way in adopting low-emission technologies.
  2. Greening Shipping Routes: Supporting the Green and Digital Shipping Corridor (GDSC): ASLET aligns with the Singapore and Australia Green and Digital Shipping Corridor (GDSC), an initiative aimed at decarbonizing and digitizing shipping routes between the two nations. By supporting the GDSC’s objectives, ASLET aims to accelerate the deployment of zero or near-zero emission technologies, paving the way for a more sustainable future in maritime transportation.
  3. Unlocking Innovation: Accelerating the Adoption of Low-Emission Fuels and Technologies: ASLET is poised to unlock new fuel solutions and accelerate the deployment of low-emission technologies at scale. With a focus on collaboration and innovation, the initiative seeks to address key industry challenges and revolutionize the maritime sector by transitioning to low-emission fuels such as ammonia and hydrogen. Through strategic partnerships and industry collaboration, ASLET aims to drive the decarbonization of the maritime supply chain, paving the way for a more sustainable and resilient industry.

By bringing together leading scientific institutions, government agencies, and industry partners, ASLET is poised to play a pivotal role in facilitating the research, demonstration, and commercialization of zero and near-zero greenhouse gas emission technologies for maritime shipping and port operations.
