What else but green?

Ocean Network Express opened its new regional headquarters in Singapore with a colourful ceremony. Meant to be an educational, interactive and collaborative space for green initiatives, the new "green" office, where ONE’s global green strategy department and South Asia regional headquarters are both now based, is an extension of ONE’s global headquarters. Senior minister of state for finance and transport, Chee Hong Tat, was the guest of honour at the event.


ONE’s CEO Jeremy Nixon said: “This year ONE published its new "green strategy" and formed a new dedicated "green" department which will now be based in this new office. “The new satellite office will host a number of GHQ and RHQ functions. Specifically, ONE's green strategy, technical, and ship management departments. As well as our South Asia RHQ team, overseeing 27 countries regionally, under the leadership of Colin De Souza.”


A kagami biraki ceremony was performed to mark the occasion. It is a Japanese tradition in which the top of a sake barrel is broken to signify harmony and prosperity. (cd)
