NEWS BRIEF: MEPC 78

The IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) held its 78th session virtually from June 6 to 10, 2022. This Brief provides an overview of the more significant issues progressed at this session.

 

IMO STRATEGY ON GHG EMISSIONS

Revision of the Initial IMO GHG Strategy

The Committee recalled that the Initial IMO Strategy on Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships foresaw the adoption of a Revised Strategy in spring 2023 and to that purpose MEPC 77 had recognized the need to strengthen the ambition of the Initial Strategy and agreed to initiate it’s revision of the Initial Strategy with a final draft Revised Strategy to be considered by MEPC 80 (July-2023), with a view to adoption.

 

The Committee had for its consideration during this session several documents containing proposals related to the inclusion of a specific date of no later than 2050 to phase out GHG emissions from international shipping; and the revision of other parts of the Initial Strategy, such as the possible strengthening of the level of ambition for 2030 and introduction of an additional progress checkpoint in 2040.

 

Following an extensive discussion, during which more than 70 delegations of Member States and observer organizations took the floor on this issue, the Committee endeavored to continue its consideration of how to pursue efforts to phase out GHG emissions from international shipping and agreed to continue the discussion at the forthcoming intersessional meeting and two working group sessions and encouraged all delegations to work together intersessionally on developing concrete proposals on the revision of the Strategy.

 

Proposals for Mid-Term GHG Reduction Measures

In accordance with the Work plan for development of mid- and long-term measures, the phase of collation and initial consideration of proposals for measures (Phase I) was due to be completed by spring 2022 before giving way to the assessment and selection of measures to further develop (Phase II).

 

The Committee noted the discussions of ISWG-GHG 12 on the consideration of concrete new proposals and additional clarifications of previously proposed measures and associated impact assessments in the context of phase I of the Work plan which mainly included:

●The International Maritime Research and Development Board (IMRB)

The International Maritime Sustainability Funding and Reward (IMSF&R) mechanism

The Mandatory High Ambition Levy on all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping

The Zero Emission Vessels (ZEVs) Incentive Scheme

The Emission Cap-and-Trade System (ECTS)

The GHG Fuel Standard (GFS)
