At COP22, IMO maintains that it is “the appropriate international body” for addressing shipping’s carbon emissions

From November 7-18, delegates from nearly 200 nations will be in Marrakech for the COP22 climate conference, the follow-up to the landmark meeting in Paris last year.
Negotiators will be working to hammer out the details of last year’s groundbreaking climate deal – how exactly, and how fast, the countries will move to implement the promised changes.
They will also have to decide whether to set more stringent requirements for themselves, as their current commitments are insufficient to prevent a dangerous average temperature rise of two degrees Celcius (3.5 degrees Fahrenheit) by the end of the century.
