Both the IMO and the EU took recent action that will impact the quest to decarbonize shipping. This talk will take stock at recent IMO and EU developments and attempt to assess prospects for the future. Emphasis will be given on market based measures (MBMs), which figure high, but in different ways, on both the IMO and the EU agendas. A comparative evaluation of several MBM classes will be made.
