In April, 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a truly ambitious strategy for the further reduction of greenhouse gas emissions for which the international shipping industry is responsible. In this paper, I will try to set the great ambition of this agreement into context, consider whether what has been agreed is enough, and what may come next in the form of additional CO2 reduction measures. It’s important to set the record straight about the enormity of what has been achieved and the great credit which the industry deserves for persuading IMO Member States to respond to the Paris Agreement in such an ambitious manner. This includes the detailed proposals the ICS made about what the strategy might look like, which we first submitted to the IMO within weeks of the Paris Agreement being adopted.
