The UK is committed to building consensus to ensure international shipping keeps pace with the Paris goal of 1.5°C degrees and is championing a 2050 target of zero emissions.

While we cannot provide specific comment on success criteria during ongoing negotiations, the UK is working to ensure the Marine Environment Protection Committee agrees a strengthened revision of the 2018 IMO greenhouse gas reduction strategy this July.
