IMO reports on GHG reduction strategy

imo logo rgb

Despite NGO claims of the industry’s inefficient GHG strategy, IMO stated that the second meeting of the Intersessional Working Group on reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from ships, on 23-27 October, has made progress in starting to shape a draft initial IMO GHG strategy.  While the structure of the strategy has been largely agreed, the detailed text to be included is still under discussion.

The group also agreed that candidate short-term measures could be measures finalized and agreed by MEPC between 2018 and 2023; candidate mid-term measures could be measures finalized and agreed by the MEPC between 2023 and 2030; and candidate long-term measures could be measures finalized and agreed by the MEPC beyond 2030. Dates of entry into force and when the measure can effectively start to reduce GHG emissions would be defined for each measure individually.
