10 Second IMO GHG Study shipping CO2 emissions 870 million tons Future CO2 emissions:  Significant increase predicted: % by 2050 in the absence of regulations  Demand is the primary driver  Technical and operational efficiency measures will provide significant improvements but will not be able to provide real reductions if demand continues

11 Potential reductions of CO2 emissions

12 12 Examples of efficiency measures: Technical: -Improved hull design and engine efficiency -More efficient propellers and rudders -Larger ships, combination carriers -Reduce installed power (speed) -Wind and solar power -Alternative fuels Operational: -Speed and energy management -Improved routeing & less waiting -Enhanced fleet management and better utilization

13 2030 – abatement potential Average marginal CO 2 reduction cost per option - World shipping fleet in 2030 (existing and newbuilds) Note; abatement potential for individual ship types and size segments vary widely

14 IMO’s work on GHG control and Energy efficiency Work on air pollution prevention from late 1980s In 1991 IMO’s Assembly called for the development of MARPOL Annex VI The 1997 MARPOL Conference’s on Annex VI called for GHG action by IMO First IMO GHG Study published in 2000 (1.8% - rapid and massive growth) IMO’s GHG policy adopted by Assembly 23 in December 2003 (res.963(23)) Development of T&O measures, including EEOI, EEDI, SEEMP: 2000 – 2009 Voluntary application and testing by administrations and industry: (2005) Basic principles adopted by MEPC 57 (April 2008) Regulatory text developed 2009 – : Adoption of new chapter 4 to MARPOL Annex VI: mandatory T&O measures Second IMO GHG Study 2009 published (2.7%, significant reduction potential) Development of an MBM from 2007, Expert Group reported in 2010 Technical - mainly applicable to new ships – EEDI Operational - applicable to all ships in operation – SEEMP and EEOI Market-based Measures (MBM) – carbon price for shipping, offsetting, incentive, may generate funds

15 Breakthrough at IMO MEPC 62 (11 – 14 July 2011) Mandatory technical and operational measures adopted Mandatory energy efficiency measures Adopted (EEDI and SEEMP) for all ships by inclusion of new chapter 4 in MARPOL Annex VI Further development of supporting guidelines on: Calculation of EEDI EEDI Reference Lines (average of ships built 1999 – 2009) EEDI Survey and Certification Development and implementation of SEEMP EEOI - Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (MRV tool and benchmark) Work on EEDI formulas for ship types not yet covered Intersessional meeting in January 2012 prepared guidelines

16 New Chapter 4 to Annex VI Regulation 19 – Application -Ship types: bulk carriers, tankers, container ships, general cargo ships, gas carriers, reefers and combination carriers - Covers 71% of international shipping CO2 - 4 years waiver clause for Administrations in need of more time Regulation 20 Attained EEDI Regulation 21Required EEDI Regulation 22SEEMP for all ships (400 GT) Regulation 23Promotion of technical co-operation and transfer of technology relating to the improvement of energy efficiency of ships

19 19 Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan SEEMP - Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan SEEMP - Onboard management tool  Monitoring of emissions and energy performance of individual ships and encouraging continues improvement, using the operational indicator (EEOI) as monitoring tool and benchmarking  Improved voyage planning (Weather routeing/Just in time)  Speed and power optimization (single most important issue)  Optimized ship handling (ballast/trim/use of rudder and autopilot)  Improved fleet and ship management - utilization  Improved cargo handling  Energy management

20 Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator - EEOI MRV tool and benchmark for individual ships  A ship specific efficiency indicator to be used by all ships in operation (new and existing) obtained from fuel consumption, voyage data (miles) and cargo data (tonnes) Cargo Onboard x (Distance traveled) Fuel Consumption in Operation = Actual Fuel Consumption Index Index

21 Guidelines adopted by MEPC 63 (March 2012)  2012 Guidelines on the method of calculation of the attained Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for new ships  2012 Guidelines for the development of a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP)  2012 Guidelines on survey and certification of the EEDI  Guidelines for calculation of reference lines for use with the EEDI MEPC 64 continued work in accordance with the work plan for technical and operational measures for ship types and propulsion systems not covered by the current EEDI formula

26 Breakthrough at IMO “This is a landmark for the Organization, which has now made a positive contribution to worldwide efforts to stem climate change and, indeed, a landmark for the international community since, for the first time in history, it has been possible to legislate GHG emission reductions for an entire industry sector” E.E. Mitropoulos IMO Secretary-General “…..this underscores the fact that IMO is best positioned to play a leadership role in addressing greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping.” Ban Ki-Moon UN Secretary-General “I would like to congratulate IMO on this outstanding result….The adoption of mandatory efficiency standards for international shipping is a major step and a substantial contribution….” Christiana Figueres UNFCCC Executive Secretary

27 Capacity building needs  Preliminary assessment presented to MEPC 61  Training of flag State and port State control officers  Training of seafarers in use of new technologies  Instil in the industry an energy efficiency culture  IMO’s Integrated Technical Co-operation Programme for the biennium allocated funding for the first round of training activities to be undertaken before the entry into force of the amendments

28 Capacity building activities Workshops on CO 2 emissions from shipping  Regional and national workshops on awareness raising and knowledge sharing to enhance global implementation and to enable States to take appropriate actions  Regional and national workshops on energy efficient ship operation for ship and shore based personnel  Regional and national workshops on energy efficient ship design for administrations, academia and industry  Regional workshops on port State control procedures and regulations related to energy efficiency and air pollution regulations under MARPOL Annex VI

29 Technical Cooperation and Capacity Building activities planned for 2011 – 2013 related to EEDI and SEEMP Model course for energy efficient ship operation developed by WMU – Finalized and issued in To be used for officers training by education institutes and the industry, important for future training Capacity building: $650,000 for training activities (e.g. EEDI verifiers) $200,000 for fellowships and $200,000 for workshops First awareness raising workshop in Durban 24 – 25 November Agreement with KOICA for a South East Asian Climate Capacity Building Partnership in Maritime Transport - $ for First workshop held in Singapore 16 – 18 November 2011 A total of 12 workshops in the region 2012 – 2013 Dialog with donors for a global project: $10 – 40 millions

30 Transfer of technology, technical assistance and capacity building on energy efficiency Transfer of technology covered in many IMO instruments, regulation 23 of new Chapter 4 goes beyond similar obligations in other treaties as it encourages cooperation bilaterally, through IMO or other organizations Transfer of technology outside IMO’s ITCP Work on draft resolution together with the regulatory text with the intention to adopt them as a package, not possible to reach consensus, still pending, needs to be resolved urgently

33 33 Will the EEDI and SEEMP be enough? They probably would if demand for shipping stopped growing. BUT… -World trade is likely to keep increasing -Emerging economies generate need for shipping -Developing countries depend on sea transport for development So, the reductions achieved by EEDI and SEEMP may be offset by increase in world trade and need for sea transport That’s why we need a market-based measures

34 Market-based reduction measures – MBM An MBM under IMO would serve two main purposes An economic incentive for enhanced energy-efficient both trough design and operation (in-sector reductions) Off-setting in other sectors (out-of-sector reduction) 10 MBM proposals by governments and NGOs under review Charges, ETS, Efficiency based, Incentive Schemes, Rebate Mechanism Three main streams: GHG Fund: Offsetting above a target line ETS: 100% auctioning (global/national) - remaining proceeds: R&D, TC, improve port/maritime infrastructure in developing countries, Climate Finance Efficiency based (EEDI): Closed trading of credits

35 MBM Expert Group established by MEPC 60  The analysis of the proposed MBM addressed, inter alia: Environmental effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and potential impact on trade and sustainable development Incentives to technological change and innovation Practical feasibility and the need for technology transfer to and capacity building within developing countries, mobilizing climate financing Relation with other conventions (UNFCCC, Kyoto Protocol and WTO) and compatibility with international law and IMO’s regulatory framework Additional administrative burden and legal aspects for National Administrations The potential additional workload, economic burden and operational impact for individual ships, the shipping industry and the maritime sector

36 MBM Expert Group established by MEPC 60 Developed methodology to asses, inter alia, possible impacts on end consumers and selected industries, in particular in developing countries, and analyzed 10 MBMs proposed by Governments/ NGOs Selected commodities and trades: Iron ore (Dirty Bulk) – Crude oil ( Tankers) – Grains (Clean Bulk) – Clothing and furniture (Container) Assumptions and growth scenarios: Size and composition of world fleet – growth scenarios (IPCC A1B: 1.65% and B2: 2.8%) – fuel and carbon prices – uptake of technology – etc. Elasticity estimates of freight rate to fuel price increase: SourceClean BulkDirty BulkTankerContainer IMO (MBM-EG) UNCTAD – 0.36 OECD

41 Impacts on consumers depend on stringency of MBM, e.g. the carbon price, if it is equal to a 10% increase in fuel price, it means a 2 – 10% increase in transport costs and an increase of 0.0 – 0.2% on end prices Trading distances - Market share Domestic Domestic production - Value-to-weight ratio Impacts on developing countries w Impacts on developing countries will vary by country independent of level of economic development. As a result, developing countries, especially SIDS and LDCs, should not be treated as a collective bloc in assessing impacts MEPC (65) will continue work on MBMs and on further impact studies with a view to select a suitable instrument in 2015 Impacts of an MBM – Conclusions:

42 The needs and circumstances of developing countries in the context of climate finance The needs and circumstances of developing countries in the context of climate finance There will be impacts from introducing and MBM, but they will be dwarfed by increases in energy and food prices Compensating affected consumers and industries cent by cent is not possible, a workable proxy is needed An MBM is intended to drive behavioural change – any compensation will undermine this purpose To use 25 – 40% of revenues to compensate all developing countries by the same key will deprive the most vulnerable countries/peoples for large climate finance opportunities A targeted approach needed where only those most affected will be compensated (threshold/GDP per capita)

44 44 IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (FAR) - A 1ºC to 2  C increase in temperature above 1990 levels will place many unique and threatened systems, including many biodiversity hotspots, at significant risk. - A global mean temperature increase of more that 2  C will lead to increasing risk of species extinction and climate havoc -The CO2 concentration must not exceed 450 ppm to keep the global warming within 2  C above 1990 level by 2100 To avoid this, CO 2 emissions must peak within 10 – maximum 15 years What is the consensus view of the world’s most eminent scientists?

45 The World’s challenge: Increasing CO 2 concentrations Today 2005 Expected in 2100 Source: IPCC FAR 2007

46 46 What is the world community doing? First step: Adoption of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Aimed at stabilizing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases to avoid “ dangerous anthropogenic interference ” with the climate system. Second step: Adoption of the Kyoto Protocol in Commits developed countries (Annex I Parties) to reduce their overall emissions by an average of 5.2% below 1990 levels between Third step: Bali Action Plan – Copenhagen Accord – Cancun Agreements – Durban Platform (2011) - Universal legal treaty covering all parties, to be adopted by 2015 and in force by 2020

49 Shipping under UNFCCC How should the balance between the basics principles under the two conventions be expressed in the new treaty text (UNFCCC and its fundamental CBDR principle, and on the other hand, the IMO constitutive Convention with its non discriminatory approach)? Should the new UNFCCC treaty state how revenues from a market-based instrument for international shipping under IMO should be distributed and used (climate change purposes in developing countries)? Should a reduction target be set for international shipping, and if so, what should the target be and should it be set by UNFCCC or IMO? No text on international shipping in the Durban outcome other than to continue address the issue Consultations in UNFCCC is slow and has not lead to an agreed text as there are three challenging obstacles:

50 Links with and effects on UNFCCC negotiations As the regulations address ships and not States, and as they do not impose any reduction obligations, quantified or otherwise, on States, as well as the fact that the cost of introducing EEDI/SEEMP will be borne by the industry, there are no incompatibility issues with UNFCCC Kyoto Protocol’s Article 2.2 is still interpreted differently by Parties Did adoption of mandatory T&O by MEPC 62 settle the issue? Disbursement of revenues from an MBM for international shipping under IMO is seen by many as a way to accommodate both sets of principles under the two conventions: - CBDR under UNFCCC and non-discrimination under IMO An MBM for international shipping could be a predictable source to the Green Climate Fund and thereby facilitate the UNFCCC negotiations

51 Climate Finance under UNFCCC The Copenhagen Accord noted the need for climate finance $30 billions annually 2010 – 2019 and $100 billions annually from 2020 The AGF report highlighted international shipping as a suitable and predictable source for climate change funding. $ 3 – 8 billions from international shipping – work should continue in IMO The Cancun Agreements agreed a process to establish the Green Climate Fund which was formally established in Durban and made operational by 2012 under the World Bank, process to identify funding sources in 2012 G-20 requested WB/IMF to explore potential sources Report to be considered by Ministers of Finance early November for submission to Durban. Elaborates on possible approaches but focuses on taxation not on the combined effect of an MBM: reduction and finance

52 Durban outcome affecting IMO’s work Reported in MEPC 63/5/5 The mandate of AWG-LCA extended by another year International transport part of mitigation under Sectoral Approaches Seven options for text on international transport in new treaty or COP decision Establishment of the Green Climate Fund Work programme under LCA to identify sources (public and private) Several proposals to use international shipping as source (AGF and G20) Direct links with IMO’s MBM work – proposed text on “no net incidence” Agreement on Carbon Capture and Storage as CDM Sub-seabed carbon storage regulated by the London Protocol

53 Summary - IMO’s GHG Work Mandatory technical and operational measures adopted in July 2011 – in force 1 January 2013 Important step - Energy efficiency standard for new ships, operational measures for all ships - Significant reductions MBM for international shipping under IMO Continued development - Possible adoption of treaty in 2015 Climate Finance and the Green Climate Fund may be the key to unlock the UNFCCC/IMO deadlock Application to all ships via IMO is the only way to raise revenues from international maritime transport (precedence in IOPC)
