Shipping CO2 emissions should be included EU emissions trading system

MEPs have put further pressure on shipping industry by imposing binding requirements to ensure that average annual emissions are reduced by at least 40% by the end of 2030

The Environment, Public Health and Safety Commission Parliament decided today, by 62 votes favour, three against and 13 abstentions, that carbon dioxide emissions carbon dioxide produced by shipping must be included Eu Emissions Trading System (ETS), including whose goal is to decarbonize shipping European Commission's proposal to overhaul the EU system for monitoring, communicating and verifying CO2 emissions from shipping (Regulation 757/2015) which was intended to bring the sector into line with the new obligations under the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

But, in addition to accepting the Commission's proposal, the MEPs, believing that policies to contain market-based emissions are not sufficient to reduce CO2 emissions from shipping put additional pressure on shipping industry by introducing binding requirements shipping companies reduce their average annual carbon dioxide emissions from activities at least 40% by 2030. "The monitoring and communication of CO2 emissions - explained Legislative project rapporteur Jutta Paulus - are important, but statistics alone do not reduce gases to the effect greenhouse of a single gram. That's why we go beyond Commission's proposal and call for tougher measures to reduce emissions from shipping.'

MEPs also called for the establishment of an Ocean Funds for the period 2023-2030, fund to be financed with revenue the auction of allowances under the ETS system and to be used to make ships more energy-efficient and energy-efficient investments in innovative technologies and infrastructures, such as alternative fuels and "green" ports. In addition, 20% fund resources will need to be used to contribute protection, recovery, and efficient management of marine ecosystems affected by global warming.

Parliamentary Commission's green light for inclusion shipping in the ETS system will need to be adopted plenary meeting in Strasbourg, which is expected to be held Between 14 and 17 September.
