A new Ship-Port Interface Guide.pdf focusing on eight practical measures which can support GHG emission reduction at the ship-port interface has been released. Developed by the Global Industry Alliance to Support Low Carbon Shipping (Low Carbon GIA) under the IMO-Norway GreenVoyage2050 Project, the Guide aims to support the maritime industry in achieving IMO’s emission reduction goals and contribute to greener shipping.
IMO has continued its work to support Pacific Island countries with a virtual workshop (23-24 March) on the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF). Maritime activity is considered an essential component of any programme for future sustainable economic growth, and most of the elements of the 2030 Agenda will only be realized with a sustainable transport sector supporting world trade and facilitating the global economy.
The IMO Newsroom is staffed between 9.00 and 5.30 UK time, Monday to Friday, by members of the Public Information Services team.
