THE Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has participated in the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) 71st Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) meeting in London that focuses on pollution prevention, the implementation of the Ballast Water Convention, and the IMO's strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by the maritime industry.
Members of the Panama delegation spoke with industry specialists at the MEPC 71 about the shipping industry's impact on the environment and participated in two working group meetings, including one on the reduction of GHG emissions from ships, and another on further technical and operational measures for enhancing the energy efficiency of international shipping.
"Taking IMO's new strategy into account, the Panama Canal remains committed to reducing its impact on the environment to combat global warming," said the ACP's environmental protection specialist, Alexis Rodriguez.
