Carbon Postive to achieve great GHG reductions using emissions trading in shipping


As it’s known the shipping industry has been heavily regulated during the last years regarding environmental protection issues. Recently a new challenge has been added.  It is the reduction of air pollution from ships.

Carbon Positive recognizing the need of ship-owners to efficiently manage the regulatory burden of emissions control and more specifically to cut the green house gases (GHGs) supports the emissions trading system.

This is an internationally accepted programme which gives more flexibility and an incentive to cut emissions and increase profits by selling the excess reductions.  This changes pollution control from a cost centre to a profit centre.
Ms Helena Athoussaki, CEO of Carbon Positive, explains exclusively to ELNAVI the benefits of emissions trading system and describes Carbon Positive activities and future plans.
