MEPC 75: 16-20 November 2020

The IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee will hold its 75th meeting virtually between 16 – 20 November, 2020. Despite unprecedented changes happening in the Arctic during 2020, the agenda will only include one issue focused on the protection of the Arctic – the approval of an Arctic HFO ban.

The Clean Arctic Alliance, is made up of 20 non-governmental organizations currently working to secure a legally binding ban at the International Maritime Organization on the use of HFO as marine fuel in Arctic waters by 2020. Find out more, including about who our members are, here.
