Webinar: Urgent Need to Cut Black Carbon from Arctic Shipping

Save the Date: Urgent Need to Cut Black Carbon from Arctic Shipping

This webinar will consider black carbon emissions from shipping impacting the Arctic from diverse perspectives. It will review the status and need for continued mitigative actions on black carbon emissions reductions under the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and possibly under other international bodies.

Low Hanging Fruit: Reducing Shipping’s Black Carbon Emissions This Decade

Increasing Arctic shipping brings increasing risks and threats – with emissions of black carbon and of greenhouse gases from vessels contributing to the climate crisis. Yet, this threat can be greatly reduced. The shipping sector has the power to quickly reduce emissions of black carbon.

COP27 Side Event: Low Hanging Fruit - Reducing Shipping Black Carbon Emissions This Decade

COP27 Side Event: Low Hanging Fruit – Reducing Shipping Black Carbon Emissions This Decade

This event will respond to the urgency, conveyed by the latest IPCC reports, to reduce emissions of short-lived climate forcers such as black carbon, along with greenhouse gases, by focusing on the shipping sector. It will consider the perspective of Indigenous communities and communities from low-lying island States. It will set out options and proposed immediate actions which would kick-start reductions in ships’ emissions that impact the Arctic.

A Clear Pathway for Achieving Arctic Green Shipping Corridors

In May, Nordic climate and environment ministers signed an agreement to establish green corridors for emission-free shipping between ports in the Nordic Region. By cleaning up shipping in the region, this ambitious and progressive move has the potential to protect our air, our climate, our marine environment and the health of millions of people. This is why the Clean Arctic Alliance, made up of 20 international non-for-profit organisations, has now written to the ministers from Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands to propose a number of domestic and international actions which would help to rapidly kick-start the establishment
