Turning IMO and EU Regulation Into Action
Meet the most influential companies and stakeholders who shape the shipping industry’s struggle towards zero emissions.
ShippingWatch’s next decarbonization conference in Copenhagen, 30 May 2023, is kicked off at a make-or-break moment for the industry. Learn how vessel operators, bunker companies and customers deal with the new rules, and how the global regulation expected next summer can raise goals and requirements substantially.
Efforts to curb emissions take a major leap forward with the entry into force of IMO’s Carbon Intensity Indicator, the CII regulation, January 1.
Seen as the most impactful climate measure on the industry to date, CII will require the entire value chain from shippers to operators to rethink ocean freight. To comply with the rules, and to decarbonize.
Also, the European Commission is expected to implement its two main decarbonization pillars with effect from 2023: The ETS, the cap and trade system, putting a price on each ton of emitted carbon, and FuelEU Maritime, requiring vessels to increasingly sail on greener fuels, year-per-year.
Add to that, that IMO already in July next year, will revise its original 2050-plan and probably raise the ambition for the coming years
And even next year, the first engine running on ammonia expected to be presented to the market.
ShippingWatch conducts a series of conferences towards 2030 focused exclusively on how the decarbonization of the shipping industry. How regulators push companies to comply. How private stakeholder come forward with solutions to curb emissions, and often push regulators. Above all, the aim of the conferences is to inspire the entire value chain.
The first conference was held in September 2021.
