Regulatory drivers – IMO politics

 IMO under strong pressure to deliver results by UNFCCC
Copenhagen climate conference (COP15) December 2009

 Political barriers - clashing IMO and UNFCCC principles
- Significant differences in national positions as regards IMO’s role in curbing

ship emissions of GHG in relation to the mandate of the UNFCCC and Kyoto

- Developing countries (non-Annex I) generally in consensus that IMO must
adopt the principles of UNFCCC / Kyoto, i.e. “Common But Differentiated
Responsibilities (CBDR)”

- This is strongly opposed by delegations of the developed countries (Annex 1),
invoking the IMO principle of “No More Favourable Treatment”

- So far not possible to break this impasse, in-depth discussions on application
of CO2 regulations, as well as on introduction market based instruments
(MBI’s), deferred until MEPC 60 (March 2010)

- Disagreements among MBI advocates on instrument most appropriate for
international shipping - bunker tax or emission trading

(March 2010)

 Discussion on market based instruments deferred until MEPC60, pending
developments at UNFCCC COP15 (Dec. 09)

 Consensus reached on interim guidelines for Energy Efficiency Design Index
(EEDI) and verification scheme, to be used on a voluntary trial basis.

used on a voluntary basis,

 Consensus on draft guidance on the development of a Ship Energy Efficiency
Management Plan (SEEMP) to be used on a voluntary basis

 More and more detailed international
regulations covering more areas than

 Environmental regulations will be in
focus in the near future, and we will
see a shift from local to global
regulations (from NOx/SOx to CO2)

 Increased focus on liability for all
partners within the maritime industry

 Corporate Social Responsibility will
play an increasing role in shaping the
maritime industry

In the future we will get
