What are the implications for the IMO from COP26’s outcomes? What are the priorities for IMO member states regarding shipping’s impact on the Arctic and the world’s climate? How will the IMO react to curb black carbon and greenhouse gas emissions – both of which are on the agenda when its Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 77) meets from 22-26 November.
Speakers will address the Arctic cryosphere crisis, the implications for the people of the Arctic and the planet as a whole, implications for health and the role of shipping in reducing impacts through black carbon reductions.
An online event to mark World Ocean Day and, ahead of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 76th session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) meeting (June 10-17).
How can the shipping industry become actors of positive change for the Arctic region? How can we inspire political will and decisive action by governments? What role can Iceland and other Arctic Council states play? How can we save the summer sea ice for Arctic communities and the health of the planet? Join us on April 27 to find out.
Join us to find out how switching fuels can cut black carbon emissions from Arctic shipping and help eliminate the harmful impacts on health and the climate. An event organised by the Clean Arctic Alliance during PPR 8 – Monday 22 March 2021 – 15:30 GMT
The Clean Arctic Alliance would like to invite you to an online event to present the reality and limitations of the draft Arctic HFO regulation prohibiting the use and carriage as fuel of HFO by ships in the Arctic, and why it is not fit for purpose and should be amended ahead of approval at the 75th session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee.
Webinar recording: find out what the draft Arctic HFO regulation will mean in practice if adopted as currently drafted, and what it will mean for Arctic environmental protection.
An event to consider the impact of black carbon in the Arctic, the consequences for Arctic communities, action to address shipping emissions within existing international forums (Arctic Council, the Stockholm Convention, the International Maritime Organization), and the opportunities to address black carbon emissions threats.
Please join the Clean Arctic Alliance and Bellona Foundation for an event welcoming new signatories to the Arctic Commitment, and to hear from operators, government and NGOs on what their policy, commitment and solutions are for a more sustainable Arctic.
