Panama Canal joins global alliance to support low carbon shipping
Date:2019-03-22 Readers:
THE Panama Canal becomes the first Latin American organisation to join the Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnership (GloMEEP) Project, consolidating its position as an environmental steward for the shipping industry.

Panama Canal Administrator Jorgen Quijano and IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim at the Panama Maritime World Conference and Exhibition on March 18. 

The alliance is a public-private partnership initiative of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) under the framework of the Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnership (GloMEEP) Project, which is a Global Environment Facility (GEF)-United Nations Development Programme (UNPD)-IMO project comprised of maritime industry leaders working to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in international shipping. 

"Today's announcement marks a proud milestone for the Panama Canal and its long legacy as the Green Route of world maritime trade," said Mr Quijano. 
"Given our roots in sustainability and innovation, this partnership reaffirms the canal's commitment to leading our industry to a cleaner and more efficient future," he said.
