IMO MEPC 72 addressed several issues important to Arctic. These issues are a proposed ban on HFO in the Arctic, an agreement to decrease GHG emissions from shipping, and the global and local effects of a warming Arctic. Twenty-two countries supported the ban of HFO in the Arctic, which is now being considered regarding ways to assess impacts.
The UK Chamber of Shipping’s Communications Director, Jonathan Roberts, is talking with respect to the ongoing efforts currently discussed at IMO MEPC 72 to reduce the industry’s environmental footprint. Mr. Roberts noted that any agreement reached this week will be a stepping stone in the global shipping decarbonisation deal.
