Consequences of market-based CO2 emission abatement measures for ocean shipping for the Netherlands

To achieve a reduction in the CO2 emissions of the international maritime shipping sector, consideration is currently being given to Market Based Measures (MBMs) such as the auctioning of emissions credits or introduction of an emissions charge. For the Netherlands, implementation of such MBMs will have only a relatively limited economic impact not dissimilar from that in other countries. Given the importance of port facilities for the Dutch national economy, the comparatively large bunker sector and the relatively small vessels and small fleet size of Dutch carriers, however, how the MBMs are organised and upheld may affect the Netherlands in specific ways.

The study was carried out jointly by CE Delft and the Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis (KiM).
