ETS – Emission Scheme Freight Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2023

23 April 2024

This clause is one from a suite of three clauses developed by the subcommittee for the voyage charter party context. The objective was to provide industry stakeholders with the flexibility to choose a procedure suitable for their specific trade and business. You should consider whether this Emission Scheme Freight Clause for Voyage Charter Parties is the one best suited to your specific circumstances or whether the ETS – Emission Scheme Surcharge Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2023 or the ETS – Emission Scheme Transfer of Allowances Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2023 would be more appropriate. As the title suggests, this ETS – Emission Scheme Freight Clause for Voyage Charter Parties 2023 deals with all costs arising from the surrender of emission allowances for the voyage by including them into the freight rate. The basis of the clause is that the voyage charterer will be the one effectively paying the owner for the emission allowances required for the voyage. The owners then remain responsible for surrendering the appropriate number of emission allowances in accordance with the applicable Emission Scheme.
