Bulc calls IMO to decide on sulfur and CO2

EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc wants the IMO to take action at a key meeting of its environmental protection committee this week, so that solutions are reached concerning global sulfur requirements and CO2 emissions. This is according to several media reports.

"It's time for global trade to really contribute and to show that they are ready to contribute to some global agendas. Not only to capitalise on positive sides, in the sense of revenues and profits, but also to be part of global visions and the sort of demand that the planet needs us to follow as well," she said.

This was the call from the EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc to the IMO Monday, according to Lloyd's List, which is holding a meeting for the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) this week. Sulfur and CO2 are the two most pressing items on the agenda, while ballast water and NOx will also be discussed.
