Salutations Unni,
Fair and equitable is aspirational on all the parties - engaging in understanding the matrix on calculating emissions resulting from scope 3 sea freight shipping conclude values allowing initiatives to include various stakeholders.
1. Consignee
Review of Scope 3 transport and distribution sea freight shipping – the methodology supports the instrument to deliver a MBM to aid in development of initiatives – consumptive based as outlined by EIS with ratios accorded fleet dependent.
This assists clients on amplifying action on climate change – the method supports review on end-of-life-stage or “cradle-to-grave” analysis which is of concern to many.
2. Fleet
Ship is measured according to inventory - baseline comparison on principals EEDI BETA
EIS instrument aids to supports a mechanism on allocation for fleet initiatives vis-à-vis
"Under the proposal, new and existing ships that meet the specified standards would not be subject to any fees, penalties or costs other than those costs associated with the installation of more efficient ship technologies that allow the vessel to meet the standards," the proposal stated
The proposal suggested that to manage and oversee collection of the use of the fees, an EIS Fund Administrator would be created under the EIS Proposal
Efficiency savings gains are passed downstream to shippers.
Triple bottom line – the opportunity to establish a mechanism which yields positive economic, social and environmental outcomes – robust review fosters such development. Thank you Sustainable Shipping I am eager to receive your updates.
Kind regards

Hi Caroline,
it is only me, not yet the Sustainable shipping, and I ask for the timetable, it needs to work with the rules acc. EEDI.....?
And with respect to the IMO, secretary general:
Mr. Koji Sekimizu said it just shortly: "MEPC 63: International shipping to send a clear message to the world... "
Same Question to him: how many years it will take, to reduce GHG from ships?
There must be more pressure in your system, don´t you know the results of climate scientists, like
Check the diagram inside this report and you can imagine, that greater steps have to be done, for example : use the wind again, at first for bulkers.

That I recognise the sense of urgency - I assure you of my full understanding on the anthropogenic implications - in equal measure on the economic and societal implications of climate change. I have seen a great many innovations that would aid in reducing GHG emissions in our and many other industries. Consider if you will the exponential if the carrier had other of its suppliers apply a criteria on environmental management systems policy development as part of its source review – our carriers recognise the intrinsic value on behaviour change – so what if their suppliers applied a similar process in their business operations – would it be conceivable that the supplier would reduce their expenses – reducing their emissions – that these savings would reflect back over the carrier. The realisation on fair and equitable – enhancing economic, social and environmental implications the right balance. Ours is an immense industry – with a variety of stakeholders – recognising its international and development applying to the triple bottom line upstream and downstream – the use of a variety of methods, behavioural and technical will achieve positive outcomes.
Do we know the outcome on Cargill trials on Kite system?

Just to modify application to exisiting fleet understand SEEMP are the guidelines - the application too this provides the benchmarking industry now has to move forward. It is 2/3/2012 - a reminder of other all good men terms of reference add to ICC Doc.
