Yee Yang Chien has presided over some of the industry’s most trailblazing decarbonisation moves during his tenure as head of Malaysian shipping giant MISC.

MISC subsidiary AET was among the first tanker operators to order LNG dual-fuel vessels, and it has since pushed forward with other initiatives, including partnerships seeking green industry-wide fuel solutions as the International Maritime Organization’s emissions deadlines loom ever closer.

Yee, through MISC, played a critical role in the launch of the Castor Initiative, an industry coalition that aims to put the world’s first ammonia-fuelled tanker in service and has a goal of greater industry collaboration.
