The Resolution meets the concerns of developing and developed nations by recognising the principles of non-discrimination in the IMO and common but differentiated responsibilities (CBDR) in the UN’s Framework on Climate Change .
Reacting to the IMO decision, Antoine Kedzierski, T&E clean shipping officer, said: “The lack of agreement on this resolution was holding up the discussion on tackling shipping emissions at the IMO for too long. Today’s decision unlocked the door to serious consideration of further measures to reduce the sector’s contribution to climate change. We urge the IMO and its member states to now make progress towards a market-based measure to reduce emissions from existing ships.”
