UNFCCC Session Highlights IMO’s Green Maritime Initiative


SBSTA 60 Session and Submission Details

In particular, the submission was made to the sixtieth session of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 60) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), taking place from 3 to 13 June 2024 in Bonn, Germany.

Presented by Camille Bourgeon, Technical Officer at the IMO’s Marine Environment Division, the document includes concrete actions being planned and undertaken to ensure the landmark 2023 IMO Strategy on Reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from Ships is translated to legally binding regulations that apply to all ships and enforced globally.

IMO’s Commitment

“IMO’s climate action is framed by the IMO Strategy on Reduction GHG Emissions from Ships, unanimously adopted by IMO Member States in July 2023… IMO Member States are actively working on transposing these collective commitments into mandatory requirements for ships under the MARPOL Convention [International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships]”. speaking at the opening plenary on 3rd June, Bourgeon said.
