EU environment committee requires harsher demands in maritime fuel regulation

The EU Parliament’s environment committee ENVI wants the EU to increase demands for the shipping industry when it comes to the union’s upcoming maritime fuel regulation, FuelEU Maritime. For instance, use of LNG has to end by 2035.

According to the EU's environment committee, ENVI, carbon emissions ought to reduced by 100 percent in 2050 instead of the proposed 75 percent. According to NGO network GSCC, this means that no more ships will sail on LNG in the EU as of 2035. | Photo: PR/CMA CGM

The EU’s proposal for an upcoming maritime fuel regulation, FuelEU Maritime, is not ambitious enough, and the demands for shipping and fuel suppliers ought to be tightened significantly.

Such is the opinion of the EU Parliament’s Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI), which on April 28 has made a proposal for a number of changes to the EU’s FuelEU Maritime initiative.
