Since 2003, SOHAR has formed deep and enduring bonds with the local community and has helped to transform the port city through a range of social, cultural and economic initiatives. This is the place where you’ll discover the many SOHAR Port and Freezone projects and initiatives that have helped bring about positive change. 

Skills development, cultural activities, sports and health, and environmental issues are high on our agenda. We work closely with local schools, Government agencies, and businesses to contribute to sustainable growth, and promote an inclusive and thriving community.

Our Commitment, Your Environment

 SOHAR has become the first port in the Middle East to reward ships with good environmental credentials. Worldwide, there are just twenty ports that offer such an incentive. As part of the World Port Climate Initiative (WPCI), key ports from around the world have committed to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions. The reward scheme incentivizes clean ships calling at the port with a rebate on their port fees.
“SOHAR is setting a new standard in the region by rewarding operators for improving the environmental performance of their shipping fleets,” said Andre Toet, Chief Executive of SOHAR Port and Freezone. “This initiative will contribute to a reduction of emissions from ships and will have a positive influence on the quality of life for our local communities.”
