PwC Greece establishes Maritime Sustainability Centre

PwC Greece is to open a new Maritime Sustainability Centre staffed by a team of specialists focusing on sustainable business in the shipping sector, with a particular focus on upcoming EU MRV regulations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Working within PwC’s Shipping Advisory Group, the Maritime Sustainability Centre will offer services to shipping companies for performance monitoring of their fleet and compliance with the new EU legal requirements on monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of CO2 emissions from maritime activities.

The new EU Regulation entered into force on 1 July 2015, aiming to establish an EU-wide system for monitoring, reporting and verifying (MRV) emissions from large ships using EU ports.

PwC says that it is already working with the European Commission in detailing the design of the MRV system for the maritime sector, with the final requirements expected to be issued in the summer of 2016.

“Drawing from our long-standing knowledge of the carbon emissions issues in the shipping market, our experience in the development of the EU MRV system for the maritime sector and also from the strong experience of PwC professionals across our global network in similar MRV systems, our team can support shipping companies holistically in improving the energy performance management of their fleet whilst complying with the new policy framework,” said Helena Athoussaki, head of the Maritime Sustainability Centre at PwC Greece.

“I’m excited to be joining the PwC network and to be leading in Greece such a prevalent issue for the shipping sector through a dedicated Maritime Sustainability Centre.”

“Since 2007 PwC has built a very strong sustainability and climate change advisory team, combining 800 experts globally. As part of the team, I am looking forward to bringing the insights of global best practices to shipping, in order to support them to find the right mix in staying competitive, compliant, driving innovation and designing efficient operational processes, whilst preserving our environment.”{/mprestriction}
