Members of the European Parliament and other stakeholders have been briefed on the Initial International Maritime Organization (IMO) Strategy on Reduction of GHG emissions from ships, adopted in April, and the follow-up actions that may be taken to implement the initial strategy including consideration of candidate short term measures.

IMO's Edmund Hughes outlined the key elements of the initial strategy, which sets a clear commitment to a complete phase-out of GHG emissions from international shipping as soon as possible in this century, a specific linkage to the Paris Agreement and a series of significant levels of ambition including at least a 50% cut in total annual GHG emissions from the sector by 2050 compared to 2008.
Hughes was speaking in Brussels, Belgium (5 June), at a briefing session organised by the European Community Shipowners' Association (ECSA). Other speakers include representatives from IMO Member States and the shipping industry.
