ICS Disappointed With Lack of Progress in Latest IMO Meeting on Reduction of GHG Emissions From Ships
The International Chamber of Shipping’s reaction on the latest IMO meeting was one of disappointment. Following is ICS’s comment after the conclusion of the Intersessional Working Group on Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships (IMO ISWG-GHG 14.)
Guy Platten, the Secretary General of the International Chamber of Shipping, comment following the conclusion of the IMO ISWG-GHG 14:
“We are disappointed by the lack of progress on setting new levels of ambition for GHG reductions to provide shipping with a clear net zero target for 2050. But we remain optimistic that a deal can still be stuck at the crucial MEPC meeting in July.
More positively, governments are increasingly understanding the value of the ICS Fund and Reward proposal to accelerate the production and uptake of low and zero-carbon fuels.”
