Green MEP Jutta Paulus, rapporteur of the proposal to Parliament's and Council's regulation Regulation 2017/757 to take into account the global system of data on ship fuel consumption. Presenting the report, Ms Paulus of Greece denounced the attempts right-wing and conservative parties to postpone the start of the reduction in emissions generated by shipping, wasting time in the combating the climate crisis, "time," he stressed, "that we don't have.
