Listen to the latest edition of the Lloyd’s List’s weekly podcast — your free weekly briefing on the stories shaping shipping
In the second part of a special extended edition of the Lloyd’s List Podcast, sustainability editor Anastassios Adamopoulos speaks with Faig Abbasov from the Brussels-based NGO Transport and Environment, and Sotiris Raptis of the European Community Shipowners’ Association, about the European Commission’s new environmental proposals for shipping
WE are back with the second part of our deep dive into the implications of the climate developments coming out of the European Union.
The European Commission has developed a legislative package to enable the EU to achieve its climate targets, making international shipping a new and very strong feature.
Shipping emissions, fuels, ports and bunker taxes are all very much targets of this new offensive, meaning that Brussels could be the epicentre of shipping regulations and climate policy for at least the next two years as EU governments and the European Parliament deliberate and decide the final details.
Faig Abbasov of the Brussels-based NGO Transport and Environment and Sotiris Raptis from the European Community Shipowners’ Association continue their conversation with sustainability editor Anastassios Adamopoulos, analysing how the proposals will affect international shipping and global decarbonisation.
