Biofouling is the accumulation of various aquatic organisms (microorganisms, plants, algae and animals) on submerged objects like ships’ hulls and can lead to the introduction of invasive aquatic species (IAS) into local marine environments.
BIMCO would like to encourage states and the industry to start a dialogue on how to create a global ruleset for market-based measures (MBM) to support the use of low carbon fuels and to create a level playing field for the industry.
In a bid to encourage wider adoption of just in time (JIT) arrival principles in the bulk sector, BIMCO has published a new clause for voyage charter parties to promote more efficient shipping procedures and as a result, help reduce CO2 emissions.
In a little over a year from now, new legislation from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will come into force. It aims to reduce CO 2 emissions and will change the way ships are operated. From 1 January 2023, owners and charterers will therefore have to cooperate to comply with the new regulation.
BIMCO contributes actively in the development of IMO's strategy to limit the average global temperature rise below 2°C.
