The 2023 Advanced Training Program for Green House Gas (GHG) Reduction from Ships from the 9th to 13th July, 2023 is currently ongoing at the Shanghai Maritime University (SMU). The program received sponsorship from the Shanghai Municipal Government, China and support from the Maritime Technology Cooperation Center (MTCC-Asia). The program is being organized to address some measures for the implementation of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) GHG Conventions and Regulations to align well with the objectives of the IMO which is reducing carbon intensity of international shipping by at least 40 percent by 2030.
