Tackling ships’ black carbon emissions in the Arctic through EU action

Is the EU About to Ignore the Impact of Shipping’s Black Carbon Emissions in the Arctic?

"The EU’s Fit for 55 Fuel EU Maritime Regulation outcome being discussed in Strasbourg this week already fails to include a provision to regulate black carbon emissions, the largest source of shipping’s climate warming impact after CO2 - cutting any mention of doing so in the future is not only deplorable, it makes a complete mockery of the EU’s own commitments made in its 2021 Arctic Strategy to lead the world on reducing Arctic ship pollution."
