Status Check: One year on from CEII regulation enforcement, how has the industry fared? Moderated by Chris Aversano, Principal Product Manager of Veson Nautical

The CII (Carbon Intensity Indicator) is a measure for a ship’s energy efficiency and is given in grams of CO2 emitted per cargo-carrying capacity and nautical mile. Starting in 2024, the CII must be calculated and reported to the Data Collection System (DCS) verifier together with the aggregated DCS data for the previous year, including any correction factors and voyage adjustments.

Deadline for DCS and CII submission remains unchanged - no later than 31 March each year with the environmental rating (A to E) to be noted on the DCS Statement of Compliance (SoC), which will be required to be kept on board for five years. We look at the first year of reporting and how the initiative impacted operational and commercial choices.

 Panellists include

  • James Frew, Business Advisory Director of Lloyd’s Register
  • Bud Darr, Executive VP of MSC Group
  • Helen Barden, Senior Solicitor, North Standard
  • Tom Keenan, Technical Committee Chairman of INTERTCARGO

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) play a major role in both maritime and global economics as do the key trading routes traversed by the world’s fleet. With many evolving and changing geopolitical dynamics currently in flux including changes to governmental administrations, sanctions, and conflicts, what will the landscape of FTAs and trading routes look like by 2030?

And what role will trade agreements play in the pursuit of environmental protection goals?
