PROJECT

With a view to establishing a common North American approach to Emission Control Areas (ECA) for ships, this project identifies North American trends in the development and adoption of ship emission control technologies, fuel quality and best practices to reduce air pollutants (nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, particulate matter) to meet requirements of US and Canadian Emission Control Areas.

Trilateral work will also support Mexico in establishing an Emission Control Area under the International Maritime Organization, by assisting with technical analyses of marine source air pollutants, requisite monitoring, training, and steps necessary to establish its ECA.

CEC News on Green Economy
Rationale

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation’s work on green economy is driven by the priorities identified by Canada, Mexico and the US in the CEC’s 2013-14 Operational Plan (guided by the CEC’s 2010–2015 Strategic Plan) to green transportation in North America and tackle climate change and improve air quality.
