LR unveils decarbonisation advisory center in Greece
To assist its customers in meeting current and future environmental issues, LR has opened a decarbonsation advisory centre in Athens, Greece.
The new project is part of LR's commitment to accelerate the sustainable decarbonisation of the maritime sector and to pursue secure, technically viable and economically viable zero-emission shipping pathways.
The goal of the centre is to help shipowners and operators in South Europe with the decisions they need to make in order to reduce their fleets' carbon intensity.
A portfolio of consulting services, using innovative tools and best practice, will be provided by an exclusive team of LR subject matter experts to help meet existing and potential greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets.
The IMO decided on a short-term measure to minimize the carbon intensity of shipping at MEPC 75 in November 2020, which involves a requirement for existing ships to be as technically effective as new ships as soon as possible after October 2022 (the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index) and an operational carbon intensity reduction requirement from 2023.
