WGGRF consolidates and distributes knowledge and best practice regarding environmentally sustainable design, build, and operation of research vessels.

​​​​​​​​​​The group reviews and reports on emissions of selected international operating research vessels (case studies) and their environmental impact. They also review the renewal profile of the fleet, as well as relevant International Maritime Organization (IMO) and other regulations.

Further, WGGRF identifies and publishes best practice and general recommendation for new builds/refit and low-emission operation of research vessels.

Their work will support the ambition of ICES on developing science that informs and support the scientific community to reduce its environmental impact, with emphasis on emissions.
