Short guide on how to be compliant with IMO GHG Strategy for shipowners

If you’re in the maritime industry you probably haven’t missed the IMO GHG Strategy. Here’s a short guide on how to be Compliant with IMO GHG Strategy for Shipowners.

(Regulation of GHG Emissions from Ships: The outcomes of MEPC 75)

  • The Aim is to reduce carbon intensity of international shipping by 40% by 2030 vs. 2008.
  • EEDI requirements have been strengthened and steps in the required limits have been moved earlier, for some of the vessel types
  • The NEW EEXI (Existing Vessels Energy Efficiency Index) implemented for existing ships as technical measure to reduce CO2emissions (EEXI calculation guidance will be ready at MEPC 76 – Q2 2021)
  • Carbon Intensity Indicator (CCI), introduced as part of SEEMP, as an operational measure of carbon intensity.
    – Initially as non-mandatory option. But will most probably be mandatory by starting 2027
    – Will contain a historical parameter, affecting the requirement based on previous progress of CII-rating
  • Cargo and cruise ships above 5000 GT – starting 2023 (initially non-mandatory compliance): Annual Carbon Intensity Indicator and rating A to E. Each ship needs to achieve rating C or better in CII. See enclosed picture

Compliance options

  • Engine Power Limitation and/or Shaft Power Limitation (Cheapest solution)
  • Energy efficiency technology and alternative energy sources
  • New Building
