12 May 2022
Work at our Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has been used to drive policy changes in shipping and aviation to bring greenhouse gas emissions targets more in line with Paris Agreement
Research conducted at our Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has been used to drive policy changes in the shipping and aviation sectors, bringing greenhouse gas emissions targets more in line with the Paris Agreement.
The research has informed policy decisions at regional, national and international levels for the past 15 years.
- Adoption of climate change targets at the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC72) meeting, hosted by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) – the UN body responsible for regulating shipping.
- Evidence to the Department for Transport’s 2019 Aviation White Paper, accompanied by an expert statement of approval to the judicial review for the development of plans for a new runway at Heathrow Airport.
- And supporting Manchester’s Climate Change Framework (2020–25).
