The Sea Cargo Charter
The Sea Cargo Charter (“the Charter”) provides a global transparent framework and baseline for assessing and disclosing the climate alignment of chartering activities against the IMO’s absolute target as set out in its Initial Strategy which is to reduce the shipping industry’s total annual greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions by at least 50% of 2008 levels by 2050.
On 14 July 2021 the European Commission adopted the EU’s “Fit for 55” package which consists of a set of inter-connected proposals that will together deliver the EU’s ambition of reducing its greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels, and for the EU to become a climate neutral continent by 2050.
