Including maritime emissions in the EU Emissions Trading System marks a significant shift for the maritime logistics industry.
Introduction of the EU ETS (Emission Trading System) in the Maritime Industry

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.

Inclusion of Maritime Emissions in the EU ETS:

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.

Transition Period and Compliance:

To facilitate a smooth transition, shipping companies will gradually be required to surrender emission allowances for a portion of their reported emissions:

  • In 2025, they have to surrender allowances for 40% of their emissions reported in 2024.
  • In 2026, the percentage will increase to 70% for emissions reported in 2025.
  • From 2027 onwards, they must surrender allowances for 100% of their reported emissions.

Impact on the Maritime Logistics Industry:

  • Compliance Costs and Financial Implications: Companies will face extra expenses as they are now required to purchase and sell emission allowances. In order to stay within their allotted allowances, substantial capital investments will be necessary for the adoption of emission-reducing technologies and sustainable fuel alternatives.
  • Operational Adjustments: Shipping companies must optimize vessel routes, reduce idle times, and adopt slow steaming practices to align with emission reduction targets. This will require careful planning and coordination to maintain the efficiency and effectiveness of supply chain logistics.
  • Market Competitiveness and Differentiation: Companies embracing sustainable practices will gain a competitive edge as eco-conscious customers and businesses are increasingly prioritizing environmentally responsible shipping solutions.
  • Collaboration and Information Sharing: Close collaboration with authorities, port operators, and stakeholders will help ensure accurate emission reporting and progress monitoring.

Conclusion:

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.

To minimize the impact of Golden Week on your supply chain, it is important to plan ahead.
JAS News Advisory: Golden Week 2023

This notice serves as a reminder of the yearly Golden Week holiday in China.  

What is Golden Week?  

September 29 - October 6, 2023 is the annual Golden Week in China, China's National Day Holiday week, to celebrate the birth of the People's Republic of China. During this week, ceremonies and other events take place throughout China.   

During this time, factories typically close, and production is halted or limited. In addition, airlines, shipping companies, railway, and commercial operators also typically limit their activities or run-on skeleton crews during these days.  

How can I reduce the impact of Golden Week on my Supply Chain?  

  • Maintain clear and open communication so that we can work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs  
  • Book as early as possible. The earlier you book, the greater the chance that you can secure shipping space.  
  • Note what shipments are most urgent so they can be given priority   

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your JAS representative.   

In a bold move to address the need for reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization introduced groundbreaking regulations concerning energy efficiency and carbon intensity for all ships.
New IMO Regulations: Introducing Carbon Intensity Measures into Ocean Freight

In a bold move to address the need for reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced groundbreaking regulations concerning energy efficiency and carbon intensity for all ships. These measures require ships to calculate their attained Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) to determine energy efficiency and to initiate data collection to report their annual operational carbon intensity indicator (CII) and CII rating. 

Understanding the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI):

The EEXI is a score given to ships based on their energy efficiency. Ships attained EEXI will be compared to a required EEXI based on an applicable reduction factor expressed as a percentage relative to the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) baseline. Each ship's calculated attained EEXI value must be below the required EEXI to meet the minimum energy efficiency standard. 

Exploring the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) Rating:

The CII is set to rank and monitor the carbon efficiency of each vessel concerning the cargo carried, and the distance traveled. The actual annual operational CII achieved must be documented and verified against the required annual operational CII, allowing the operational carbon intensity rating to be determined. The rating ranges from A to E (where A is the best), and the threshold requirements will become stricter year over year.

Impact:

  • Environmental Benefits: The primary goal of these IMO regulations is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). By measuring and monitoring energy efficiency, shipping companies can identify areas for improvement and optimize their operations to minimize carbon footprints.
  • Technological Advancements: These regulations will encourage the development and adopting of cleaner technologies within the maritime sector, fostering innovation and creating a demand for sustainable solutions.

Challenges:

  • Compliance Costs: Implementing the EEXI and CII measures will require investments in ship upgrades, retrofitting, and enhanced operational practices. For shipowners and operators, this could pose a significant financial challenge, particularly for older vessels.
  • Disruptions to Shipping Schedules and Supply Chains: As the cost of technological advancements is high, ships implement fuel-saving measures like slow-steaming, which can lead to longer transit times, affecting the predictability and reliability of cargo delivery.
  • Data Collection and Reporting: The accurate measurement and reporting of a vessel's carbon intensity require reliable data collection systems. Shipowners must adapt to new reporting standards and overcome potential technical barriers in gathering and transmitting data.

Conclusion:

Implementing the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) and Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) measures marks a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry. While they offer environmental benefits, they also present challenges, including compliance costs and potential disruptions to shipping schedules. Collaboration among stakeholders, technological advancements, and regulatory support are crucial to navigating these challenges.
