Europe's shipowners have called for the "polluter pays principle" to be at the core of the EU's new ETS proposal for shipping

An alliance of Greek, Swedish and Italian shipowners, along with other individual shipping companies and T&E, has written to the European Commission's Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans and Commissioner Valean to demand that the maritime emissions trading system is both ambitious and tailor-made to the industry.

This is a crucial time for the sector as EU regulators are currently outlining the details and the scope of the scheme, which will define how shipping emissions are regulated in the coming years.
