The EU’s Fit for 55 climate package provides an opportunity to tackle black carbon emissions from ships and deliver the EU’s Arctic Communication commitment to lead the drive to lower the carbon and environmental footprint of maritime transport.
Infographic: Growth in Arctic shipping is Bad News and the result of a destabilised Arctic Environment
The Arctic is warming 3 times faster than the rest of our planet. The shipping industry must rapidly reduce CO2 and black carbon emissions and their effect on the Arctic. Reversing the loss of the Arctic ice sheet, glaciers and sea ice is critical to the future of Arctic wildlife, communities and the planet.
Scrubbers turn an air pollution problem into an ocean pollution problem. How does that work?
Infographic: International Shipping emissions contribute to global climate heating and Arctic sea ice melting
If shipping was a country it would be the 6th biggest emitter of CO2.
The IMO’s Arctic HFO Regulation will not protect the Arctic for nearly a decade.
Waivers will undermine the International Maritime Organization's Arctic heavy fuel oil ban.
A series of six infographics highlighting the problem and threats posed by black carbon from emissions from shipping, with emphasis on the Arctic. Find out why the effects of black carbon (BC) have more in the Arctic, the health implications for communities, why black carbon is increasing, and what actions are available to reduce BC emissions from shipping.
Infographic: Heavy Fuel Oil Spills - Case Studies of a Global Problem
The IMO's draft ban on heavy fuel in the Arctic risks being a "paper ban" devoid of meaningful protection of the Arctic.
Heavy fuel oil (HFO) is shipping's dirtiest fuel - almost impossible to clean up following a spill, and produces high levels of pollution when used by ships. The Arctic is warming at twice the global average. Between 2015 and 2019, HFO use in the Arctic increased 75%. This infographic demonstrates how HFO has no place in the Arctic.
