IMO regularly updates appropriate UNFCCC bodies and meetings on its action to address GHG emissions from international shipping.

Following a request from the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), IMO has submitted the 2023 IMO Strategy on reduction of GHG emissions from ships to the First Global Stocktake (GST).

The Global Stocktake was established under the Paris Agreement to enable countries and other stakeholders to review progress made towards meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement.

IMO's submission to the first Global Stocktake can be found on the UNFCCC platform here.

More information about IMO’s work on the reduction of GHG emissions from ships and its submissions to UNFCCC and SBSTA can be found here.

IMO will participate in the 2023 UN Climate Change Conference COP 28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in November/December 2023. More information on IMO's participation can be found here
