The Maritime Just Transition Task Force was announced at COP26 by  the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF), the United Nations Global Compact, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The Task Force will lead and coordinate efforts to work with governments, industry, workers and their representatives to ensure a safe and human-centred approach to achieving green shipping, stressing the principles set out in the ILO Guidelines for a Just Transition.

At COP27, they released a position paper outlining a 10 point action plan to achieve a Just Transition for seafarers.
