IMO : EEDI
International Maritime Organization (IMO) :
Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).
View our Submission to MEPC 63 here.
A call to the IMO to:
— Develop and adopt clear, meaningful, and verifiable flag neutral regulations to significantly improve energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions from international shipping.
— Include a ubiquitous energy efficiency design index, such as the Existing Vessel Design Index (EVDI) hosted on ShippingEfficiency.org, as an objective and mandatory measure of a ship’s inherent efficiency in the IMO climate regulations, with a view to providing sufficient commercial incentives towards the overall goal of mitigating CO2 emissions from international shipping.
— Establish a baseline for, and to apply a design index, such as EVDI, to existing ships in addition to the application of EEDI to new ships as approved by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) in July 2011 – as soon as possible.
IMO Campaign Update
11th to 15th July 2011, London: the shipping industry saw a major policy milestone being met. The vote for introduce the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) to the world shipping fleet was on a knife-edge and could go either way.
65 governments met at the United Nations’ International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and voted on a move that would start the process for emissions reduction in the shipping industry.
The IMO agreed to enforce energy efficiency design index (EEDI) standards on newly-built ships from 2013.
We will continue to keep conversations flowing around the existing fleet alive within the IMO...
But this is only the start...
