EU adopts proposal to harmonize MRV with IMO's system

EU Commission adopts proposal to revise the EU system for monitoring, reporting and verification (EU MRV) of #CO2 emissions from maritime transport. The aim is to harmonize the EU MRV system with the IMO system.

Transport & Environment considers that publishing data about the emissions of all ships calling at EU ports will incentivize shipping companies to cut their #CO2 while also better informing regulations to reduce emissions. In the 90’s the parameter system was primarily used to check compliance with the NOx regulations because monitoring systems were less available and expensive.

Nowadays, the market offers accurate and less expensive monitoring systems, but the NOx regulatory enforcement still relies on the parameter system. Isn't it time for a change?
