"Mr President, this is a good proposal and one where the EU is leading the field. Our goal is an international agreement to ensure a level playing field for all. Four per cent of all greenhouse gases come from the maritime sector, and as world trade grows, that percentage will rise. The maritime sector is the only area not covered by agreements or regulations in regard to CO2 reductions. Therefore it is time to act. We need a supranational framework: that is our aim. But we must make a start, and this is the start, where all vessels entering European ports will have to monitor the verified amounts of CO2 emitted by their large ships on voyages to, from and between the EU ports. They will also have to report the amounts. Other information will also be required, for example data to determine the ship’s energy efficiency. It is also important that this proposal can be implemented without major costs being involved."@en1
