ABS met Taiwan’s maritime industry leaders to debate decarbonisation, digital technologies and the future of safety at the annual ABS Taiwan National Committee meeting.

“As the leading class organisation in Taiwan, ABS is able to call on the expertise of leaders to inform our approach to meeting industry challenges such as meeting IMO 2030 and 2050 objectives while ensuring safety standards are not compromised and keep pace with technological challenges,” said Christopher J Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO, who actively participated in the Committee programme. “The National Committee is an example of how we work closely together to tackle their pressing technical, operational and regulatory challenges.”

The Committee heard about the best-in-class safety performance of ABS, including achieving more than two years without a work-related lost-time incident. The superior Port State Control performance of ABS and strong fleet safety performance underline its focus on safety and its mission.

ABS presented its innovative work on developing pathways to 2050 and demystifying digital technology. “The dialogue we have across our Committee helps guide ABS on how best to address the issues facing our industry on our journey to 2030 as well as looking further ahead to 2050,” said Anchor Chang, Taiwan Committee Chairman and Chairman, Evergreen Marine Corporation.
