Shippers call for carbon data

[ October 7, 2014   //   ]

The Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF) is calling for a data collection system to measure ships’ carbon emissions. Shippers are under increasing pressure to be able to report Scope 3 (indirect carbon emissions) to customers and require this data from ship operators.

It comes ahead of the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) Marine Environment Protection Committee in mid-October.
