- Reductions of carbon intensity through the use of the Energy Efficiency Design Index for new ships (EEDI) and the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI).
- Submission of the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plans (SEEMP) for external audit and statutory certification.
- Use of operational Carbon Intensity Indicators (CIIs) and the collection and submission of operational data, with ships being designated annually with an “A to E” rating.
