Edmund Hughes has stepped down as the head of the International Maritime Organization ’s (IMO) air pollution and energy efficiency division. Hughes had been at the IMO since 2010 and was on hand for some of shipping’s greatest changes in generations including the adoption in 2011 of Chapter 4 of MARPOL Annex VI (EEDI/SEEMP). He was also in the room when the Paris Agreement was adopted in 2015, was instrumental in the adoption of the initial IMO strategy on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from ships in 2018 and, following five years’ work, he was able to see the entry into force of the global sulphur cap six weeks ago before leaving his post. Hughes will be establishing his own consultancy business called Green Marine Associates.
