To mark the 30th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez disaster, the Clean Arctic Alliance comments on recent devastation from HFO spills in Solomon Islands and the Bay of Biscay.
Watch: Members of the Clean Arctic Alliance team at the International Maritime Organization HQ, talking about working for a HFO Free Arctic, during the PPR6 meeting.
Ensuring the Arctic is protected from oil spills and black carbon pollution from heavy fuel oil is one these ways – it’s achievable, and within our grasp.
The Clean Arctic Alliance analysis of the outcomes of MEPC73 and the how the work towards banning heavy fuel oil from the Arctic is progressing.
The images were put forward by both amateur and professional photographers to show that this seemingly remote and inaccessible region is home to uniquely adapted communities and iconic wildlife
Clean Arctic Alliance Response and Clarifications regarding Climatic responses to future trans‐Arctic shipping
Clean Arctic Alliance has publicly called on shipping companies already carrying cargo across the Arctic to be transparent about their choice of fuel. While the IMO’s Polar Code already recommends ship operators “not to use or carry heavy fuel oil in the Arctic”, it is not binding. With an Arctic HFO ban on the way, The Clean Arctic Alliance wants to know – which shipping companies will become flagships for a HFO Free Arctic?
The Clean Arctic Alliance has good news to share regarding real progress towards a ban on the use and carriage of heavy fuel oil (HFO) as marine fuel in Arctic waters.
As climate change impacts the Arctic, momentum is building to rid the region of the world’s dirtiest fuel: heavy fuel oil. Several countries are calling for a ban from Arctic shipping – but more support is needed.
The Clean Arctic Alliance is organising a side-event at MEPC72 on Tuesday, 10 April at 1745: The Climate Crisis: A message from the Arctic. The aim is to increase awareness among IMO delegates about the local and global consequences of the current changes taking place in the Arctic, and to demonstrate the necessity for IMO to agree an ambitious strategy to reduce greenhouse gases from shipping globally and a regional ban on HFO in the Arctic.
