In response to documents MEPC 75/10/Add.1 and MEPC 75/7/15 and in light of the crisis unfolding in the Arctic, along with the fact that Black Carbon emissions from shipping continue to grow both globally and in the Arctic, the co-sponsors propose the development and adoption of an MEPC Black Carbon resolution. The resolution would set out recommended interim measures pending completion of IMO work to identify and implement one or more Black Carbon abatement measures. The annex includes elements that should be considered for inclusion in such a resolution.
