The business benefits of IMERS include:
  1. Hassle free solution for CO2 emissions with minimal administration costs (no allowances to manage, no individual cap to comply with, services provided, no set-up costs)
  2. No impact on international competitiveness (level playing due to global implementation)
  3. Increased cash flow (EBIDTA) as a result of improved operations and reduced fuel
  4. Reduced risk of fuel disputes
  5. Compliance easily verifiable (via fuel and voyage data, and analytical tools)
  6. Reduced risk of multiple regulations
  7. Benefits of better image (clean transport, social responsibility)
In summary:

Climate change action makes good business sense
