ProjectGHG: Useful resources

Project GHG: Supporting the industry to meet ambitions on Greenhouse Gas emissions.

Shifting ambitions on Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) will impact how our Members work in several ways. Not just within the context of their day-to-day operations, but in how they are planning for the future with significant investments in people and vessels required if we are to meet new ambitions in this area.

IMCA has collated the resources below to support technical leads and business decision makers in an uncertain marketplace.
