“Excited and honoured to facilitate the upcoming Green Finance panel at Green Ports and Shipping Congress” - Jackie Spiteri, Managing Director, Sustainable ESG 

Jackie Spiteri (1)

Jackie Spiteri is an experienced Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) professional with a history of working in the maritime and infrastructure sector bringing a wealth of knowledge on sustainable development and operations. 

 Jackie will head up Session Three of Green Ports and Shipping Congress. This session promises to be a pivotal discussion on the forefront of sustainable finance within the maritime industry, featuring insights from esteemed experts like Pang Toh Wee, Senior Consultant - Maritime Advisory at DNV, Eugene Wong, Chief Executive Officer at Sustainable Finance Institute Asia, Jens Van Yperzeele, Director of Sector Coverage Transport & Logistics - Shipping at ING, and Terry Tamminen, Director at Catalytic Finance Foundation. 

The discussion will delve into the critical topics of raising funds for decarbonisation through innovative financial instruments such as green, sustainability-linked, and transition loans and bonds.  

With the maritime industry facing pressing demands to reduce its carbon footprint, the session aims to explore the mechanisms and strategies that can support the transition to zero-carbon shipping. This is particularly relevant in light of the ASEAN Taxonomy for Sustainable Finance, which sets a benchmark for green investments in the region. 

The session will also examine specific initiatives like the Port Decarbonisation Fund and how such frameworks can mobilize resources towards sustainable maritime infrastructure and operations.  

Jackie says, “the panel is not just about highlighting challenges but also about showcasing the opportunities that lie in aligning financial flows with sustainable maritime development. The insights from our distinguished panellists will undoubtedly contribute to a richer understanding of how the maritime sector can navigate the complexities of green finance and lead the way towards a more sustainable future”.
