Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships (GloMEEP) Project
by International Maritime Organization (United Nations entity)
The aim of the Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnership (GloMEEP) Project is to contribute to a significant reduction of GHG emissions from international shipping via enabling 10 Lead Pilot Countries (LPCs) to take a lead in the respective developing regions to pursue relevant Legal, Policy and Institutional Reforms (LPIR), capacity building and enhance private-public partnerships for innovation and technology deployment.

While the long-term goal is the reduction of GHG emissions and mitigation of their impact on the oceans, the project is achieving its goals through the development of global guidance and methodology documents and templates, their national implementation, capacity building as well as information exchange platforms, and piloting these interventions with the assistance and involvement of the 10 selected LPCs.

The project contains a stream of work that aims to bring together like-minded maritime private industry champions and leverage the human, technological and financial resources of the industry to support an energy efficient and low carbon maritime transport system.
