Shipmanagers and owners ponder ETS contractual responsibilities

Documentary Committee to focus on carbon clauses at February gathering

Both clauses follow hard on the heels of the EEXI Transition Clause published in December last year as part of BIMCO’s prioritised roll-out of carbon-related clauses for the industry.
