Description: This document provides high-level guidance to assist the gas shipping industry in its efforts to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. CO2 is considered a greenhouse gas (GHG), and it is vital to minimise the environmental impact from the transportation of liquefied gas. This is the first document in a series that plans to address this issue. As a first step, this document provides guidance on the standardised measurement and reporting of CO2 emissions.
This document identifies typical sources of CO2 emissions from gas carriers and describes the methodologies for measuring CO2 emissions. The reporting standards set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and European Union (EU) for CO2 emissions are then explained, covering both technical and operational efficiency.
Additional info: The Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to protect and promote the mutual interests of its members in matters related to the safe and reliable operation of gas tankers and terminals within a sound environment. The Society was founded in 1979 and was granted consultative status at the International Maritime Organization in November 1983.
