EU adopts green fuel law for shipping

After two years of intense negotiations, the EU has agreed on the final rules for climate-neutral shipping, with the adoption of the so-called FuelEU Maritime initiative.

The political agreement means that shipping will be covered by the EU’s emissions trading system (ETS) from 2024 and FuelEU Maritime from 2025, with shipping companies gradually reducing the climate impact of fuels. Additionally, there will be rules for the infrastructure of alternative fuels, including requirements for using shore power in selected larger ports.
