In accordance with the established long-term goals for reducing GHG emissions, the IMO recently approved the amendments to MARPOL Annex VI, which incorporate the energy efficiency index for existing vessels (EEXI – Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index).
While the EEXI is a one-time certification targeting design parameters, the CII (Carbon Intensity Indicator) addresses the actual emissions in operation.
The IMO adopted energy efficiency strategy regarding the reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions, the following goals have been set:
• Energy Efficiency requirements for existing vessels since 2023
• Carbon Intensity targets for existing vessels since 2026
• Reduction of carbon intensity by 40% by 2030
• Reduction of carbon intensity by 70% by 2050 (50% total)
