Assarmatori: Italian Shipowners ask the revision of the IMO’s CII (Carbon Intensity Indicator)

March 24, 2023

In a statement, Assarmatori President Stefano Messina’s says that the Italian Shipowners are concerned about the IMO’s new CII, “whose metrics urgently need to be revised.”

“As it is conceived today, it leads to effects opposite to those of environmental protection, penalising precisely the Italian vessels that every day ensure the shift from road to sea.”

“ETS revenues derived from maritime services in Italian ports must be allocated to the research and development of new technologies for maritime transport, such as alternative fuels. Again, we have reiterated how these fuels are unfortunately not yet available on a large scale with no adequate distribution and storage network in ports”, Messina concluded.
