Chairman of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) Roberto Cazzulo, speaking at the IMO World Maritime Day Symposium on 'Sustainable Maritime Transportation System', noted that IMO had recently supported in principle his organization's proposal for establishing an (Energy Efficient Design Index) "EEDI Database" for new ships being constructed in accordance with new IMO GHG regulations.

In a detailed paper Mr Cazzulo observed that action by IMO on climate change would lead to significant emission reductions, between 9 and 16% in 2020 and between 17 and 25% by 2030 compared with current practice. He said, "The emission reduction measures will also result in significant fuel cost savings to the shipping industry, although these savings will require deeper investments in more efficient ships and more sophisticated technologies than today".

He added: "IMO's SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan) may represent the most practical mechanism for monitoring, reporting and verification of GHG emissions, and energy efficiency of existing ships. SEEMP has the necessary degree of flexibility, considering the different ship types, sizes and operational profiles. IACS shares the shipping industry's concerns against attempts to develop a single metric for ships-in-service."
