Accelerating Green Technology for Global Sustainability

The IMO CARES Project

The IMO CARES (Coordinated Actions to Reduce Emissions from Shipping) project is funded by The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is focused on the needs of developing countries to meet the IMO Energy Efficiency and IMO GHG Strategy targets and thus help drive the achievement of global GHG emissions reduction.
The project’s objective is to accelerate demonstration of green technologies and their deployment globally in a manner that facilitates blue economic growth in developing regions. IMO CARES aims to bring together a wide consortium of stakeholders, including Research and Development Centres (R&D Centres), Maritime Technology Cooperation Centres (MTCCs), private sector and IMO GHG technical cooperation projects. This will allow stakeholders from both the global north and south, and from across different sectors, to collaborate under a single framework leading to demonstration and technology uptake in developing countries.
