Talking OTC Commodities


Fit for 55 – is Shipping running out of time?

Season 2, Ep. 3

In this episode, Michael Mervyn-Jones (EEX) and Richard Heath (EEX) discuss the ongoing transition to greener shipping with Tjard Juergens, Stefan Schindler and Patrick Schwinke from ZEABORN Ship Management and specifically examine just how ready the shipping industry is when it comes to EU ETS readiness.

In the podcast, the panel chats on the progress made since the “Fit for 55” package was announced almost a year ago and highlights a number of key areas which require further clarification including transparency of the political process, the importance of credible MRV data and who is ultimately responsible when it comes to paying the costs.
