India has been recognized as the pioneer lead country for the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Green Voyage2050 Project, a significant stride toward mitigating Green House Gas (GHG) emissions from ships.

  • The GreenVoyage2050 Project is a partnership project between the Government of Norway and IMO launched in 2019 aiming to transform the shipping industry towards a lower carbon future.
  • The Initial IMO Strategy sets out a clear vision to cut total annual GHG emissions by a minimum of 50% by 2050, relative to 2008 levels.
  • The GreenVoyage2050 Project is working with 12 countries: Azerbaijan, Belize, China, Cook Islands, Ecuador, Georgia, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Solomon Islands, South Africa, and Sri Lanka.
    • The participating countries can be broadly categorised into “New Pilot Countries” and “Pioneer Pilot Countries”.
