ESC on EU ETS Maritime

The European Shippers’ Council welcomes the ambitious climate goals laid down in the European Climate Law and the European Green Deal and likewise supports the ultimate purpose of the Fit for 55 Package, namely a 55% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 – compared to 1990 levels – and a carbon neutral Europe by 2050.

While supporting the proposed measures, ESC recognises that the foreseen transition can entail numerous challenges for the transport sector, and therefore is persuaded that such shortcomings should be adequately considered and addressed.
