INTERCARGO supports IΜΟ in the mitigation of global GHG emissions from ships

IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim’s concerns that including shipping in the European Union’s Emission Trading System (EU-ETS) could undermine efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships on a global basis.

These concerns were raised following an agreement on 16 December 2016 by the European Parliament's Environment Committee that emissions from ships should be included in EU-ETS from 2023, if IMO does not deliver a further global measure to reduce GHG emissions for international shipping by 2021. IMO has already approved a responsible roadmap for developing a comprehensive strategy on reducing GHG emissions from ships, through to a 2023 horizon.

Shipping is by definition an international activity and IMO is the appropriate body to address its global challenges. While the agreement of the European Parliament's Committee still needs approval at European higher level, it is disappointing to see, in the face of global and demanding challenges, the demonstration of regional and insufficient thinking.
