Environmental protection is ultimately going to trump trade, according to our podcast guest this week — the IMO’s head of air pollution and energy efficiency, Edmund Hughes. Speaking to Lloyd’s List Editor Richard Meade and reporter Anastassios Adamopoulos in this week’s edition, he talks us through his confidence about 2020 implementation, the lessons learned in lowering sulphur that might help the decarbonisation debate, and the role of the IMO amid rapidly changing political dynamics
WITH the 2020 sulphur cap just around the corner and crunch meetings to determine details around the 2050 decarbonisation strategy looming, the IMO’s head of air pollution and energy efficiency, Edmund Hughes has a hectic schedule ahead of him. But not so hectic he couldn’t find time to sit down with the Lloyd’s List Podcast to talk us through 2020, 2050 and the political challenges that IMO faces amid a rapidly changing set of macro dynamics.
