The United States, along with Canada, has submitted a proposal to the International Maritime Organization that would designate an area off our coasts in which stringent international emission controls would apply to ocean-going ships. When adopted, this control program would dramatically reduce air pollution from ships and deliver substantial benefits to large segments of the population, as well as to marine and terrestrial ecosystems. This fact sheet contains an overview of the proposal.
