Malaysian maritime officials are touring the Port of Bintulu on Borneo island as part of an International Maritime Organization (IMO) training package helping countries to reduce emissions in ports.

Thirty participants from authorities and ports across Malaysia are taking part in the event (24-26 July), with the aim of gaining improved expertise on assessing emissions in ports and devising strategies to address those emissions.

The result - better air quality for local populations and contribution towards the battle against climate change.

The training took place under the strategic partnership between the IMO-run GloMEEP project on energy-efficiency and the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH).

It was hosted by the Marine Department Malaysia and Bintulu Port Authority, and delivered by a team of IMO consultants from the Port of Los Angeles and Starcrest Consulting Group.
