Maritime regulation – FuelEU is a welcome step in maritime’s journey to decarbonisation

The FuelEU Maritime Regulation sets ambitious requirements for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions and will support the decarbonisation of the maritime sector by increasing consistent use of green and low carbon fuels. It’s an important message for the shipping sector, which is responsible for 80-90% of global trade and around 3% of annual GHG emissions on a CO2 equivalent basis.1

Owners of vessels of 5,000 gross tonnes and above now have clear requirements to limit the annual GHG intensity of the energy used on board a ship in or between EU ports by 2% by 2025, 6% by 2030 and 80% by 2050 (compared to a 2020 baseline).
