Changes in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)

October 25, 2023
Starting on January 1, 2024, a phased implementation of changes in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) for greenhouse gas emissions will come into effect. This is a central part of the European effort to reduce emissions. Through strategic planning for transportation, Saltimport is actively working towards a modern and sustainable value chain.

What is the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)

The EU ETS is designed to record the maximum amount of CO2 equivalents that can be emitted annually. This creates a market for CO2 emissions. Everyone participating in the EU ETS manages their portion of a shared carbon allowance registry. The carbon allowance system is introduced gradually and will be fully implemented by 2026.

The system aims to reduce emissions from energy supply, industry, aviation, and maritime activities in Europe in a cost-effective manner.

What does this mean for you as a customer?

Saltimport monitors emissions according to the carbon allowance system and actively works to optimize capacity utilization and optimal shipping routes to and from our terminals.

The introduction of the EU ETS will be gradual and will be fully implemented by 2026. Details on how Saltimport will handle this with its customers will be communicated as the implementation progresses.

The cost of carbon allowances will be passed on without any additional markup.

Emission-Free local salt transportation in the future

Through our project with Viridis Bulk Carriers, we aim to learn and, hopefully in the near future, be able to ship salt short-sea on ammonia-powered vessels. This is a project to develop an efficient, emission-free freight network based on Viridis' vessels and cargo volumes from each customer partner.

Learn more about the project with ammonia-powered vessels here.

We have a goal of achieving zero emissions in all our logistics processes.
