Using emission control areas in our oceans to reduce shipping pollutants

Sönke Diesener from the Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) explains how they advocate for strict regulation of pollutants from cargo ships and help to establish emission control areas in key geographies.

The #BoldClimateActionIs campaign showcases how our network of partners and grantees is driving bold climate action and how leaders can scale these solutions. Join the conversation on social media and tell the world what #BoldClimateActionIs to you.

“There are technical solutions available to decarbonize shipping and also bring down air pollutants drastically. We need political actions to force the industry to do so to be in line with the Paris Agreement and bring down shipping pollution to zero by 2050.”
