1 January 2024 brings in a major change for shipping.
The mandatory European Union Emissions Trading Scheme combats regulated GreenHouse Gases by requiring power, industrial and aircraft interests to obtain and relinquish emissions allowances. Known as EUAs, these represent quantities of GHGs emitted annually, and can be bought and sold in a “cap and trade” marketplace.
This is fast coming to shipping, because from 1 January 2024 the EU ETS will apply to CO2 emissions from all vessels of 5,000 GRT and above that enter EU ports, whatever their Flag State. There is grading if loadport and disport are both in the EU or one is outside, and for shipping the scheme will apply to methane and nitrous oxide only from 2026.
This will bring about the challenge of compliance, with extra requirements and the need for strategic carbon management, but also the opportunity to help with decarbonisation by trading on the world’s first and most extensive carbon market.
