    Ship Emissions at Berth - The IAPH ESI Pilot Project

    Last year the IAPH Environmental Ship Index (ESI) celebrated its tenth anniversary, with 6,900 registered vessels and 60 port and maritime incentive providers working together to reduce NOx, SOx and other ship emissions, financially rewarding fleets that continuously improve their vessel efficiency. This session will give delegates an overview of the next step for the Index and how it is engaging with the cruise industry to take the first vital step in implementing a ship emission at berth module as part of the new ESI 2.0.
