MARITIME CO2 PROJECT
Undoubtedly, any measure aiming at the reduction of CO2 emissions in the shipping industry will have a significant impact on the maritime sector as well as significant financial, social and environmental impacts. The Maritime CO2 Project aims in the assessment of the possible environmental, social and financial impacts associated with the adoption of a CO2 allowance trading scheme in Europe and specifically in the maritime nations of Cyprus, Greece and Denmark. The results of this project will provide a valuable insight on the issue of shiiping emissions and will serve as a tool to the EU and national decision centers. Moreover, they can, hopefully, contribute to the development of a more environmentally friendly shipping industry.
