This COP28 provides an overview of the environmental and health impacts of black carbon on the Arctic.
During this webinar speakers will elaborate on the environmental impact of scrubbers - designed to remove sulphur from the exhaust of international ship - and their relevance to the discussions at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) which will next consider the use of scrubbers at the 11th session of the Pollution Prevention & Response (PPR) subcommittee meeting in February 2024.
As the Arctic faces a climate crisis, access by ships is changing. Between 2013 and 2019, there has been a 25% increase in shipping in the Arctic and a 75% increase in the distance travelled by ships in the Arctic.
This webinar discusses black carbon emissions from shipping impacting the Arctic from diverse perspectives.
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.
