Shipping is one of the fastest growing sources of transport greenhouse gas emissions, and is also a major source of air pollution causing health problem, acid rain and eutrophication. Like aviation, the sector's international emissions were not explicitly mentioned in the Paris climate deal. The UN global regulator the IMO needs to act now while the EU in parallel needs to include shipping in its 2030 reduction commitment. T&E works, together with other members of the Clean Shipping Coalition, to reduce the air pollution and climate impacts of shipping globally and in Europe.
