Today parties have their last and best chance to make progress on addressing emissions from international shipping and aviation, already contributing to more than 5 percent of global emissions and growing faster than any other sector.
Bunkers Working Group
International aviation and shipping are inherently global sectors, and emissions from these sectors occur either on the high seas or in flights between countries, and are thus difficult to allocate to individual countries. For this reason they are not included in national emissions reduction targets. The CAN Bunkers working group (whose name derives from the “bunker” fuels used by ships and aircraft) advocates for measures to control and reduce emissions from these sectors under the UNFCCC, International Maritime Organization (IMO) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in particular market-based measures that can regulate and cap emissions, while also generating revenue that can be used for climate finance.
