In recognition of the scale of the challenge facing shipping and refining industries in the change to lower sulphur emissions, and in recognition of possible divergence across regions and countries in implementing the IMO decision, the platform has been created.

Our mission is to act as a platform for our members to formulate advice for stakeholders, including governments and regulators, to promote a fair and level global playing field for all affected industries. The activity of the platform would be conducted before, during and, if judged appropriate to do so, after the transition.
