Description: Ship-Port Interface Guide : Practical Measures to Reduce GHG Emissions
This Guide presents several practical measures that:
.1 can be applied today with limited or low capital and operational investments;
.2 are relatively easy and quick to implement; and
.3 have the potential to contribute to GHG emission reduction with additional benefits.
With the average economic lifetime of a ship of approximately 25 years1 and the prospect of zero emission ships entering the market from 2030 onwards, measures that have relatively short payback times with additional benefits for safety and security can be considered low-risk investments.
With this in mind, this Guide presents eight practical measures that can be implemented with limited capital. The measures have not been ranked in terms of emission reduction potential, but have been ordered into measures related to port operations, administrative data, nautical data and speed optimization.
The Guide presents an explanation of each of these measures and identifies how their implementation can lead to GHG emission reductions and further benefits for the maritime sector (e.g. for the safety and security of shipping). Barriers to the global implementation of each measure are identified and preliminary potential solutions and next steps are suggested which could be taken to progress implementation further.
