International shipping should cut air pollutants and greenhouse gases together

In perfect agreement with APICE results, European Environment Agency (EEA) has published the report "The impact of international Shipping on European air quality and climate forcing"

The report underlines that the emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases from the shipping sector have increased substantially in the last two decades, contributing to both climate change and air pollution problems, The sector's environmental impact is significant as emissions such as carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOX), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and particulate matter (PM2.5) from shipping occurring in European waters can contribute up to 10–20 % of overall worldwide shipping emissions.
