Shipowners want clear climate strategy from IMO

Shipowners want clear climate strategy from IMO

23-10-2017 12:00:00


During the last round of negotiations in July, the IMO countries adopted a seven-point plan for the content of the climate strategy. This week, the next round of negotiations begins. Danske Rederier expect that the main focus will be what the ambition level should be for ships’ CO2 reductions.

"Danske Rederier want the ships’ CO2 reductions to happen in line with the rest of the world, and that the industry will thus deliver reductions on equal terms with other industries. It is important that IMO takes the lead here so that we can avoid regional EU regulation," says Maria Bruun Skipper, deputy director of Danske Rederier.

The outline of the global climate strategy for CO2 reductions from shipping is ready prior to the next round of negotiations in IMO. Danske Rederier want to increase the level of ambition so much that the maritime sector meets the Paris agreement's goal of keeping global temperature increases below 2 degrees.

In general, the participants have split up in two groups. On one side, Denmark stands with other European countries, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and a number of Pacific islands. This group advocates quite ambitious CO2 reductions.

On the other side, Brazil, India, Argentina and Saudi Arabia pull in the opposite direction and expresses concern about the additional costs that accompany less CO2 emissions. Special attention to developing countries is also a matter of importance for this group of countries.
