Emissions Connect

ADVANCE from raw data to sustainable operations

Emissions performance is a crucial business factor

In today’s shipping industry shipowners and managers must comply with ever-tightening regulations and ever-rising expectations from stakeholders, customers and partners.

There is a need to manage and operationally control the performance of the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII). coupled with the precise accounting of carbon emissions for the settlement of the EU allowances (EUAs) and, last but not least, the need to manage the effects of the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) in the maritime supply chain. And once the FuelEU Maritime Regulation comes into force in January 2025, emissions data that can be trusted by a wide range of stakeholders will become even more important.

To give you the ability to seamlessly manage these and upcoming regulations, we developed Emissions Connect, a unique digital solution that allows you to

  • consistently manage emissions data,
  • easily integrate partners and
  • quickly generate required statements.

Handle EU ETS and gain operational CII control

Driven by a multitude of factors emissions performance is taking a place within the commercial terms between shipowners, operators, and technical managers thereby affecting the entire maritime value chain.

Emissions Connect by DNV fuels the industry’s collaboration by equipping the maritime value chain with capabilities to verify and share data – providing the trusted basis needed to facilitate settlement of EUAs and manage CII performance.
