As part of ongoing efforts to combat climate change, the European Union (EU) has extended the Emissions Trading System (ETS) to include CO2 emissions from all large ships entering EU ports. Starting in January 2024, this move will hold shipping companies accountable for their carbon footprint, fostering energy efficiency and incentivizing low-carbon solutions within the maritime logistics industry.
In May 2023, the EU officially adopted amendments to the ETS Directive and the Regulation on the Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) for maritime transport. These amendments will integrate maritime emissions into the ETS, encompassing 50% of emissions from voyages starting or ending outside the EU and 100% of emissions between two EU ports or when ships are within EU ports. This step will apply to all large ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above, irrespective of their flag.
To facilitate a smooth transition, shipping companies will gradually be required to surrender emission allowances for a portion of their reported emissions:
Including maritime emissions in the EU Emissions Trading System marks a significant shift for the maritime logistics industry. While compliance with the regulation will present challenges, it also creates opportunities for the sector to embrace sustainability, foster innovation, and collaborate effectively to contribute to a greener future.
