Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI): Actions for Compliance

Targets have been set by the IMO for the reduction of CO2 emissions in international shipping, and there is limited time remaining until the latest measures in this global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions enter into force. To limit and reduce the technical carbon intensity of vessels, the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) has been adopted to compliment the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) which is already applicable to new construction vessels. The EEXI is a one-time certification addressed under the International Energy Efficiency (IEE) Certificate, and is applicable to specified existing ship types.
