The CII is key to creating more energy efficient ships and cutting emissions in the short-term.

Currently, the CII is not realising its full potential!

The revision of the CII, due to start at MEPC82 and conclude by 2025, is a key opportunity to bring it up to date with the revised GHG Strategy and to make sure that it works in the future in a coherent way with the basket of mid-term measures (BoM) being negotiated at the same time.

Despite global commitments to keep global heating below 1.5C, we have already reached 1.2C. Setting emissions targets to be reached in the near-term will be key to avoiding climate tipping points.

Only through improved efficiency – and wind power – will the IMO be able to hit its GHG reduction goals. And CII is the tool that can drive these improvements in the most cost-effective way.

London, 22 March, 2024:- As this week’s meeting of the International Maritime Organization’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 81, March 18-22) winds down, the Clean Shipping Coalition welcomed the growing support for a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions levy, but warned that IMO member states must also maintain focus on other key issues such as the global fuel standard (GFS) and the improvement of how energy is used in ships via the carbon intensity indicator (CII).

The Clean Shipping Coalition is calling on the IMO to urgently step up ship climate action by improving its Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII), which would quantify and raise ship efficiency while fostering greater transparency and driving deep and lasting reductions in pollution.
