Danish Shipping present at climate summit

06-11-2017 13:00:00


Today, the annual International Climate Summit on the UN Climate Convention (UNFCCC), the so-called COP23, commences. Nearly 20,000 delegates from all over the world are discussing how to keep global temperature increases below two degrees. Danish Shipping are among the participants.

"We support and actively participate in the IMO's work to formulate an ambitious climate strategy to ensure that shipping also reduces its CO2 emissions in line with the rest of the world economy. It is an important message that we bring to COP23. Here we participate to support international climate negotiations and to maintain IMO, as the global maritime regulator,"says Maria Bruun Skipper, Deputy Director at Danish Shipping.

Shipping, like aviation and agriculture, is not directly mentioned in the Paris Agreement, which has a clear, built-in expectation that all sectors will contribute. Currently, countries are negotiating reduction requirements for ships in the UN Maritime Organization, IMO.

It is therefore up to the IMO member states to decide when, how much and how shipping should reduce its CO2 emissions.

"Danish Shipping state that shipping, on equal terms with all other sectors, must contribute to the Paris agreement's goal of keeping global temperature increases below two degrees.”
