Emissions from ships, the Europarliament’s letter to press for reduction

“Aim at a 70%-100% reduction by 2050”

20180413_2.jpgThe Europarliament’s delegation to the IMO has asked the European Commission and the member states to focus the efforts to work out at the 72nd session of the MEPC held in London a result that responds to “the urgency to act against the climate change.”
In particular, as reads the letter signed by europarliamentarians José Inácio Faria (EPP), Jytte Guteland (S&D), Dubravka Suica (EPP) and Bas Eickhout (Greens), they call for “a decisive pressure to set between 70% and 100% the target of reduction in greenhouse gas e missions by 2050 compared to the levels of 2008” and “engage in the implementation of measures to reduce the emissions by 2023.” According to the signatories, these commitments should be coupled with a “ strong support for a work plan for actions to be adopted before 2021.”
“It is crucial that the shipping should be decarbonized and subject to environmental regulations,” the letter closes, “preferably by the IMO, and also by other means, if necessary.”& amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; #160;
