Glossary for climate change definitions

In June 2022, BIMCO, FONASBA, IAPH, IFSMA, InterManager, INTERTANKO, IPTA and IUMI published a climate change glossary to clarify and harmonise definitions and terminology to ensure that discussions around climate change and potential solutions for the shipping industry are based on a mutual understanding of what the commonly used terms mean.

The document was developed by the BIMCO secretariat under the auspices and in collaboration with the sub-group on alternative fuels. The glossary was peer-reviewed by Katharine Palmer, United Nations Climate Change (UNFCCC) High-Level Climate Champion’s (HLCC) Shipping Lead and can be downloaded here.
