NGOs note Arctic Council’s greater focus on black carbon but upbraid it on failure to commit to reduce black carbon emissions from Arctic shipping
Ahead of this week’s Arctic Council gathering in Iceland, an international coalition of 22 non-profit organisations is calling on Arctic foreign ministers to demonstrate global leadership by agreeing to cut black carbon emissions from shipping and to take effective action on Arctic-wide elimination of heavy fuel oil.
The Clean Arctic Alliance continues to call for a mandatory measure requiring all ships operating in and near to the Arctic to switch to distillate fuels or other cleaner fuels
Now is the moment for decisive action by the IMO to ensure that black carbon emissions from shipping do not contribute any further to an Arctic meltdown.
Mandating a switch of fuels in order to cut black carbon emissions in the Arctic would be an easily-won victory for both the IMO and the shipping industry, and put the sector on course towards decarbonization.
The Clean Arctic Alliance welcomes the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation as the latest illustrious signatory of the Arctic Commitment, joining more than 165 companies, explorers, politicians and NGOs.
Clean Arctic Alliance calls on IMO member states to agree on stronger ban of HFO in the Arctic ahead of November meeting
