How we work

ICES policy statement on net-zero CO2 emissions

​ICES acknowledges and supports actions taken by member countries to substantively reduce emissions and will take actions necessary to move towards net-zero status for operations and activities managed directly by the Secretariat and carried out during meetings of ICES Expert Groups as soon as possible. These actions will be taken in full consultation with member countries and in recognition of their specific positions. 

ICES will also encourage and support activities within our network which develop and integrate the science necessary to provide advice on reducing emissions associated with fishing and fish processing operations, aquaculture, research, monitoring, and ecosystem-based fisheries management, and integration of mitigation technologies, such as marine renewables, with other uses of marine space and resources. 

ICES considers this initiative to be of the highest priority and will make every effort to meet this goal, and engage the community in identifying, developing, and implementing the changes required.

This policy will be reviewed regularly.​
