CO2 Index guidelines issued by the IMO

Following work completed during a working group session at its last meeting between 18 and 22 July, the IMO's Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) has issued MEPC Circ. 471 giving its 'Interim Guidelines for Voluntary Ship CO2 Emission Indexing for Use in Trials'. 

Noting that these are still interim, the MEPC has invited the industry to begin using the guidelines to monitor CO2 emissions from shipping and to provide feedback to the IMO on the guidelines and their use.
