Did you know that 95% of our visible trade in the UK comes to us by sea? The emissions from shipping are significant. If we put shipping emissions on the list of the world’s biggest polluters by country, shipping would be the sixth largest country.
75 countries have signed the MARPOL Agreement which requires ship-owners to reduce their emissions of SOx and NOx that came into force on 1st January 2015. Green Sea Guard has developed a system which helps coastguards to monitor emissions and make their job easier, the system also helps ship-owners to monitor their CO2 emissions and subsequently report these data to their customers.
