New Year, New Regulations to comply with
We certainly can appoint MRV as one of the most popular regulations of the year 2017. But how seriously did you take it into consideration? Have you implemented the proper measures to deal with it? Or do you think this is just one more set of rules to make you spend money unnecessarily?
Although many share this kind of thoughts, MRV was created with a reason, other than the economic one: to reduce CO2 emissions from the shipping industry. Over the last two decades, CO2 emissions from maritime transportation have increased by almost 50%.
If we let MRV and others regulations like this fail, we and our future generations will certainly pay a high price, as we can observe by the constant climate changes that are more and more visible.
With this in mind, let’s start the new year achieving goals, complying with regulations, monitoring your vessels and reducing emissions.
