marine emissionsA PAN-PRD DIALOGUE ON MARINE EMISSIONS

with the European Maritime Safety Agency

FREE OF CHARGE

The European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, thanks to EUBIP is delighted to act as a supporting organization in this seminar hosted by CIVIC Exchange.

In the Hong Kong-Pearl River Detla (HK-PRD) region, emissions from ships and port activity have a disproportionate effect on public health as they are highly toxic, and occur immediately adjacent to population centres, despite being a smaller proportion of regional air pollution than other sources. Addressing emissions from vessels in a coordinated way across the HK-PRD region is essential to effectively addressing this challenge. The shipping sector complies to higher standards and tighter standards elsewhere, and understands that the global trend is to clean up.

18 leading shipping lines are calling for regulation in HK-PRD through The Fair Winds Charter, a voluntary agreement to use cleaner fuel while at berth in Hong Kong. At the same time, Guangdong and Hong Kong governments have released several policy documents over the last three years indicating that reducing vessel emissions – from local craft as well as ocean-going vessels – deserves attention.

Funded by the Hong Kong SAR Government’s Environment Conservation Fund, this forum brings together scientists, government officials, business leaders and academics from around the world to discuss reducing vessel emissions in the HK-PRD region and around the world. What is the public health impact that emissions from these sources have? What’s being done in HK-PRD to address this challenge? What is international best practice? What would regulation look like across the PRD?

Amongst the different speakers, Pia Berglund, Project Officer at the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) will join the panel debate and share the EU experienced in marine emissions regulation. She is currently working as Project Manager for Legal Aspects of Maritime Safety, Environmental Protection, Marine Environment, Training and Statistics at the EMSA in Lisbon. At EMSA, she works with questions relating to air pollution in general, but focusing specifically on sulphur related issues. Ms Berglund is seconded by the Government of Sweden, where she is employed at the Swedish Transport Agency and holds the post as Head of the International Liaison Unit at the Maritime Department. She has been active in negotiations for Sweden within the EU and IMO for more than 10 years. She holds a Master in Law.
