Shipping

Shipping transports about 90% of global trade, being thus the main mode of transport. International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set a number of legal instruments that regulate environmental issues, related to shipping, such as the following:

  • International Convention for the Prevention of
    Pollution from Ships (MARPOL)
  • OPRC Convention and its 2000 OPRC-HNS
    Protocol on oil pollution preparedness, response
    and co-operation
  • Hong Kong Convention on safe and
    environmentally sound recycling of ships
