The Tristar Group has committed to ban non-reusable plastic materials in its shipping operations at SOHAR Port and Freezone commencing 2019.
This was announced at the recent Sohar Safety Summit with the theme ‘Drive Change in Safety Culture’ which was attended by Sohar Industrial Port Company (SIPC) officials Jacob Bac, Deputy Harbour Master, Hashim Al Bloushi, Senior Marine Safety Officer, Waleed Al Siyabi, HSE & ERP Supervisor, and Ibrahim Al Balushi, Marine Safety Officer.
The event was also attended by users of the Port of Sohar Service jetty and teams from Sohar Port Pilot Tug, Svitzer, Al Batinah Mooring, and National Marine Services Diving.
Tristar Ship Management General Manager Henri de Gersigny said: ‘We at Tristar are committed to support the 2018 World Environment Day theme of ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ by refusing items that cannot be reused.” He also urged the participants to support the desired change by getting involved in keeping the environment clean and improving the health of their personnel.
Last June 25 the Tristar Shipping Team celebrated International Day of the Seafarer at SOHAR Port and reiterated to the participants the importance of reducing the use of plastic materials at sea. Plastic has been highlighted as one of the biggest environmental threats facing the world by the UN. As much as 8.8 million metric tons of plastic trash is washed into oceans every year. If unchecked, it is estimated that plastic, by 2050, will outweigh fishes in the ocean.
