MAWANI: A Key Contributor to Saudi Arabia's Net Zero By 2060 Target
The maritime transport and logistics industry today, has a telling impact on marine life, nature and the environment. Therefore, stakeholders in the shipping and logistics sector need to be very serious about treading the sustainable path.
Saudi Arabia, pivotal to Middle East's maritime presence, has pledged to cut emissions to net zero by 2060. And the Saudi Ports Authority, MAWANI, is proving to be a key contributor in the Kingdom's efforts to achieve this target.
In the run up to a net zero 2060, MAWANI has adopted a slew of steps that include the Smart Ports Initiative. Under this programme, the port authority is witnessing a massive transformation with the adoption of technologies like 5G and Artificial Intelligence.
Automating operations and building smart and efficient ports are the basics that would transform Saudi Arabia into a vibrant logistics hub and back the Kingdom's march towards a better quality of life and fully sustainable future for all.
