Progress made in developing GHG strategy for international shipping

The second meeting of the Intersessional Working Group on Reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions from Ships (23-27 October) has made progress in starting to shape a draft initial IMO GHG strategy including refining the vision for IMO, which will express IMO's further commitment to reducing GHG emissions from international shipping.

Norwegian shipping companies are far ahead when it comes to using environmentally friendly solutions on ships. NSA and Norway are encouraging IMO to set ambitious goals on how much and how fast the industry is to reduce its emissions.
