The UK is fully committed to fulfilling our obligations to the Paris Agreement in all sectors. Our strategy for the shipping industry is led by the Department for Transport. The UK has been an active participant in negotiations on the development of an International Maritime Organisation strategy on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The initial strategy is due to be adopted in April 2018 and revised in 2023. UK priorities are that the strategy sets a level of ambition for the sector consistent with the temperature goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change. It should contain a range of short, mid- and long-term measures, some of which will be mandatory. The UK will continue to push for a credible and ambitious outcome in discussions at the International Maritime Organisation.
