Shippers set out their stall on maritime emissions

[ October 23, 2012   //   ]

The Global Shippers’ Forum published the second edition of its Maritime Emissions Briefing Note on 22 October at the Clean Cargo Working Group’s Fall meeting in Jersey City US. Launching the report, Bruce Carlton, GSF Board member and president and CEO of the National Industrial Transportation League in the US said: “The CCWG is to be applauded for its ongoing efforts in championing industry best practices and developing practical industry tools and solutions to improve the environmental performance of the maritime supply chain.”

GSF’s Maritime Briefing Note provides a comprehensive assessment of the various emissions schemes and proposals tabled by governments, the shipping industry and other non-governmental organisations currently under consideration by the International Maritime Organisation.  It also considers the main industry-based schemes, including GSF’s own maritime supply chain decarbonisation initiative undertaken in conjunction with Heriot- Watt University, Edinburgh.
