Environmental Committee of the European Parliament publishes its report on the Shipping MRV proposal
Today the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI Committee) of the European Parliament voted its report on the proposed Shipping MRV regulation.
ENVI Committee voted 41 in favour, 7 against and 9 abstentions
Although the Commission had proposed to apply the Shipping MRV regulation only to ships exceeding 5000 T of gross weight, and to consider only CO2 emissions, the approved ENVI report is going in a different direction with the approval of several compromises:
- #3 , #2 , #5 will apply the regulation to ships from 400 T of gross weight
- #7 includes all greenhouse gas emissions, and not only CO2 emissions
The indicative plenary sitting date is scheduled on 16 April 2014.
