A PPR 10 Side Event hosted by Friends of the Earth International and Pacific Environment, and organised by the Clean Arctic Alliance.
Webinar Video: Reducing black carbon emissions and other impacts from shipping on the Arctic (Pre PPR 10)
Liudmila Osipova, International Council on Clean Transportation, presents research on black carbon emissions from ships sailing in and near the Arctic.
This webinar looks at how scrubbers have turned global shipping’s air pollution problem into an ocean pollution problem.
This briefing provides insights on the agenda for climate emissions and marine pollution discussions at the forthcoming 79th session of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 79). The event lays out the Clean Arctic Alliance’s expectations and recommendations for the IMO’s first MEPC meeting after COP27.
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.

UN Ocean Conference Shipping Event: Joining the dots between sustainable maritime logistics and planetary boundaries
The event at the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon will surface a range of concrete solutions on developments in carbon-neutral transport services, and sheds light on some of the gaps in current maritime transport policies.The event at the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon will surface a range of concrete solutions on developments in carbon-neutral transport services, and sheds light on some of the gaps in current maritime transport policies.
