IMO:n GHG työryhmä ja ympäristönsuojelukomitea

Tulevan kevään Lontoossa 30.3.–3.4.2020 pidettävän IMO:n ympäristönsuojelukomitean (MEPC) kokouksen tavoitteena on löytää yhteisymmärrys ja tehdä päätös niistä lyhyen aikavälin toimenpiteistä, jolla merenkulkuala etenee kohti asetettuja päästövähennystavoitteita. Valmistelutyössä on kehitetty sekä teknisiä (EEXI) että operatiivisia menetelmiä (operatiivisen indeksin rajoittaminen ja seuranta). Muutosten on tarkoitus tulla kansainvälisesti voimaan ennen vuotta 2023.

ISWG-GHG 7/2

 

Possible regulatory framework on a mandatory goal-based measure to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping

 

Note by the Chair

 

 

The document provides a possible regulatory framework prepared by the Chair to assist progress by the Group on agenda item 2

ISWG-GHG 7/2/4

 

An analysis of limiting engine power as a short-term measure to reduce CO2 emissions from existing ships

 

Submitted by the Pacific Environment and CSC

 

This document assesses the potential for engine power limitation (EPL) to reduce CO2 emissions from the existing fleet, based on the results of a new study by the International Council on Clean Transportation. The co-sponsors conclude that EPL as currently envisaged is not fit for purpose as a short-term measure to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping and that other measures, including mandatory speed reduction and directly limiting the operational carbon intensity of ships, would be more effective and appropriate.

 

ISWG-GHG 7/2/5

 

An analysis of limiting engine power to reduce CO2 emissions from existing ships

 

Submitted by the Pacific Environment and CSC

 

 

This document summarizes the key findings of a new study by theInternational Council on Clean Transportation on the effectivenessof engine power limitation (EPL) as a measure to reduce CO2emissions from existing ships. The complete study is provided in theannex.

ISWG-GHG 7/2/6

 

Draft amendments to MARPOL Annex VI to incorporate the goal-based energy efficiency improvement measure utilizing Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI)

 

Submitted by Greece, Japan, Norway, Panama, United Arab Emirates, ICS, BIMCO and INTERTANKO

 

This document proposes draft amendments to MARPOL Annex VI to incorporate the goal-based energy efficiency improvement measure utilizing Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI), with a view to approval at MEPC 75 and entry into force in 2022. The draft text, as set out in annex 1 of this document, was developed by an informal group established by interested Member States and non-governmental organizations.

ISWG-GHG 7/2/7

 

Draft guidelines associated with draft amendments to MARPOL Annex VI

to incorporate the goal-based energy efficiency improvement measure utilizing

Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI)

 

Submitted by Greece, Japan, Norway, Panama, United Arab Emirates,

ICS, BIMCO, INTERTANKO and RINA

 

As a supplement to document ISWG-GHG 7/2/6 proposing draft amendments to MARPOL Annex VI to incorporate the goal-based energy efficiency improvement measure utilizing Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI), this document proposes three sets of draft guidelines to implement and enforce the EEXI. These guidelines are namely: 1) the EEXI Calculation Guidelines; 2) the EEXI Survey and Certification Guidelines; and 3) the SHaPoLi/EPL Guidelines for the EEXI.

ISWG-GHG 7/2/8

 

Additional information on impact assessment of the goal-based

energy efficiency improvement measure on existing ships (EEXI)

 

Submitted by Greece, Japan, Norway and ICS

 

In accordance with paragraph 12 of the Procedure for assessing impacts on States of candidate measures (MEPC.1/Circ.885), this document provides additional information on the impact assessment of the goal-based energy efficiency improvement measure on existing ships (EEXI) as proposed in document ISWG-GHG 6/2/3 (Japan and Norway), for which an initial impact assessment is provided in document ISWG-GHG 6/2 (Japan and Norway). The additional information shows that implementation of the EEXI will reduce ship running costs while increasing interest and insurance costs. The overall transport costs will not be negatively impacted under the proposed level of the required EEXI.

ISWG-GHG 7/2/9

 

Proposal for a mandatory operational goal-based short-term measure

 

Submitted by  Denmark, France and Germany

 

The co-sponsors propose a mandatory operational ”goal-based” short-term measure where an individual target of carbon intensity reduction is assigned to each ship and where ship-owners and crews are free to choose the means to reach it. Enforcement will be based on the ship’s International Energy Efficiency Certificate (IEEC) that will be renewed every 5 years with an annual verification audit on achievement of the ship’s annual target. The co-sponsors propose several amendments to Annex VI of MARPOL and the inclusion of a new regulation 22B in it.

ISWG-GHG 7/2/14

 

Strengthening the SEEMP with mandatory elements and regular audits

 

Submitted by Greece, Japan and Norway

 

This document proposes to strengthen the SEEMP framework by adding mandatory elements in the SEEMP and a recommendation to audit the SEEMP at every ship and company audit as part of the existing ISM regime. The document includes drafts amendments to regulation 22 of MARPOL Annex VI and the SEEMP Guidelines.

ISWG-GHG 7/2/15

 

Addressing concerns raised at ISWG-GHG 6 on the proposal to establish an Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI)

 

Submitted by Greece, Japan and Norway

 

This document aims to address questions and concerns raised at ISWG-GHG 6 on the proposal to establish an Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI): is a power limit effective as opposed to a speed limit, and will the proposed EEXI reduction levels lead to emission and carbon intensity reduction? What is the impact on SIDS and LDCs? And what is the impact on older ships?

ISWG-GHG 7/2/16

 

Proposal for a goal-based operational measure

 

Submitted by India, Liberia, Panama, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, ICS and RINA

 

This document contains a concrete proposal for a short-term measure for immediate consideration by ISWG-GHG 7, based on goal-based operational and technical measures to reduce GHG emissions from ships. The measure is based on proposals already considered at ISWG-GHG 6 and would complement the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) and Carbon Intensity Indicators (CII) approaches. As such, it provides a positive and ambitious way forward which could be finalized and agreed quickly, with implementation by 2023.

 

ISWG-GHG 7/2/20

 

Detailed impact assessment of the mandatory operational goal-based

short-term measure

 

Submitted by Denmark, France and Germany

 

This document provides a detailed impact assessment of the mandatory operational goal-based short-term measure submitted by Denmark, France, and Germany in document ISWG-GHG 7/2/9. The detailed impact assessment is undertaken in accordance with the procedure for a comprehensive impact assessment as defined in MEPC.1/Circ.885. The detailed impact assessment is provided in annex to this document, and recommendations are provided in paragraph 15 of this document.

ISWG-GHG 7/2/21

 

Proposal for an operational carbon intensity rating mechanism as a mandatory goal-based measure to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping

 

Submitted by Brazil and China

 

The document proposes an operational carbon intensity rating mechanism as a mandatory goal-based measure to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping, including the proposed draft amendments to MARPOL Annex VI and the sketches of four supporting guidelines

ISWG-GHG 7/2/22

 

Comments on document ISWG-GHG 7/2 on possible regulatory framework on a mandatory goal-based measure to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping

 

Submitted by the Republic of Korea

 

This document provides comments on document ISWG-GHG 7/2 (Note by the Chair) regarding possible regulatory framework on a mandatory goal-based measure to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping

ISWG-GHG 7/2/23

Comment on a possible regulatory framework on a mandatory goal-based measure to

reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping

 

Submitted by Germany, Netherlands and Spain

This document comments on the draft regulatory frameworkproposed for a mandatory short-term goal-based measure asproposed by the Chair in document ISWG-GHG 7/2. It suggestschanges that improve the wording in order to clarify that ships mustcomply with both operational and technical efficiency standards at asufficient level of ambition if the commitment in the Initial Strategy isto be met.
