2nd IMO Symposium on Low & Zero-Carbon Fuels for Shipping on Oct 21
The Second IMO Symposium on low- and zero-carbon fuels for shipping: "Ensuring a just and inclusive transition towards low-carbon shipping" will be held on October 21, 2022 at IMO Headquarters in hybrid mode.
This second symposium will focus on the challenges and opportunities that renewable fuel production represents in the context of shipping decarbonization.
The meeting will focus particularly on developing countries, and the need for enhanced cooperation at all levels to support this global transition.
"IMO Member States are actively engaged in the process of revising the Initial IMO Strategy on Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships and in developing a basket of candidate mid-term measures," the IMO stated.
This includes technical and carbon-pricing elements which will set global shipping on a path to phasing out GHG emissions.
"Incentivizing the availability and use of low- and zero-carbon marine fuels and ensuring the ability of all States to take part in this transition is paramount," the IMO said.
