A critique of the International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s new Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) which comes into effect January 1, 2023.
The CII assigns a rating to ships based on their carbon efficiency. It takes into account their actual trips rather than just design. It also can change over time, as the ship encounters actual use and those measures are reported back.
For ships sailed by owners this is not so bad. But for chartered ships, the charter agreement could place the owner at a disadvantage, since the charter operator may use the vessel on routes or with sailing practices that reduce the measurements for the ship’s CII.
The article is interesting and quotes several commentators who think the problems will result in less sustainable shipping instead of more.
