Green measures at sea

THE Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) examines environmental issues under the scope of the Inter-national Maritime Organisation (IMO) and comprises all IMO member states.

The MEPC considers the control and prevention of ship-source pollution covered by the Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (or Marpol, short for “marine pollution”), including oil, chemicals carried in bulk, sewage, garbage, and emissions from ships, including air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions. Other matters the MEPC considers include ballast water management, anti-fouling systems, ship recycling, pollution preparedness and response, and the identification of special areas and particularly sensitive sea areas.
