EU’s proposed FuelEU Maritime Regulation fails to protect the Arctic from the impact of shipping black carbon emissions. Despite the EU’s Arctic strategy supporting efforts to reduce black carbon emissions and promoting faster and more ambitious emission reductions for Arctic shipping, the EU’s supposed 'landmark' agreement ignores black carbon - 20% of shipping’s climate impact
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.
Video Q&A: Why the EU’s Fit for 55 Package of Climate Regulations Must Include Black Carbon from Ships
The follow Q&A videos, presented by the Clean Arctic Alliance team considers how the EU’s Fit for 55 package can address black carbon and deliver a double-whammy by delivering the commitments in the new Communication and the IMO’s black carbon Resolution within the “brief and rapidly closing window to secure a liveable future” referred to in the latest IPCC AR6 report.
