What impact will FuelEU Maritime have on voluntary book-and-claim systems?

March 25 2024

This insight brief is the first of two that focus on the interaction between voluntary book-and-claim-enabled activities, which are driven by individual corporate willingness to reduce emissions, and compliance activities, which are driven by regulation and binding emissions reduction targets.

It aims to create awareness of how compliance mechanisms impact voluntary book-and-claim-enabled activities, taking the FuelEU Maritime (FEUM) regulation as an example. This paper frames the context for the second insight brief, which will explore the crucial topic of “additionality”: determining how voluntary emissions reductions can be considered additional to those undertaken for regulatory compliance.
