Cruise Saudi joins research consortium to boost sustainable practices

RIYADH, May 22, 2024

Cruise Saudi, a 100% Public Investment Fund-owned company, has signed a membership agreement with the Fleet research consortium, as it joins in their mission to improve the economic and environmental competitiveness of the aviation, road, and marine sectors.

Founded by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Kaust) and Oil Sustainability Program (OSP), Fleet (Fuels, Lubricants, and Efficient Engine Technologies), aims to bring together key stakeholders of the energy and transportation sectors within Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and internationally to collectively respond to the need for more sustainable energy solutions.

As a member, Cruise Saudi joins other private entities of the energy and transportation sectors, to work together on the common goal set by Kaust’s Clean Combustion Research Center to collectively develop technologies that are both economically viable and environmentally sustainable.

Dr Ahmed Alsaggaf, Executive Director of Sustainability & Innovation at Cruise Saudi, said: “Sustainability and innovation are at the core of everything we do at Cruise Saudi, and we are continually looking to identify and implement the most innovative practices which promote sustainability – not just reducing our carbon footprint but across the entire value chain of the cruise industry that we are developing in Saudi.

“As such, we are looking forward to playing a part in the important research Kaust is doing to improve sustainable energy in the maritime sector and beyond. It is an exciting new chapter for both Cruise Saudi, and wider Saudi, as we work towards a more sustainable future.” – TradeArabia News Service
