About the Clean Arctic Alliance

The Campaign

HFO-Free Arctic is a global campaign committed to protecting the Arctic from the hazards and risks posed by the use of heavy fuel oil (HFO). The campaign is currently working to secure a legally binding ban at the International Maritime Organization on the use of HFO as marine fuel in Arctic waters by 2020 (more on current progress here).  The campaign is led by the Clean Arctic Alliance.

The Clean Arctic Alliance

The Clean Arctic Alliance is made up of  20 not-for-profit organisations committed to a ban on use of HFO as marine fuel in the Arctic.  The Clean Arctic Alliance also includes individual advisors to the HFO-Free Arctic campaign.
