Moreover - specific the call for action - it would have to be adopted a oriented approach at the market and the objectives of reduction of the emissions would have to be reached to the minor possible cost and the field would have to be able to experience the use of a system of rates based on the emissions of carbon dioxide or other mechanisms that can generate economic value from the initiatives of reduction of the gas emissions to greenhouse effect.

Moreover the strategy would have to meanwhile promote the acceleration of the use of technologies and fuel to lowlands carbon dioxide emissions encouraging the financings in the field of the search and the development. The document finds moreover the urgency to adopt some measures to mean and long term, that they would have to be applied before 2023, included the development of fuel to emissions zero to the aim to introduce solutions for the decarbonizzazione within 2030.

The document states also the necessity that the implemented solutions would have to be times to strengthen the current technical, operating and energetic measures, maintaining or improving the standards of safety and emphasizes the importance that, in this context, all the norms of the IMO in environmental field are compatible with the future norms in order to achieve the objective in 2050. At last the precise document that the norms established from the IMO and applied to the Member States would have to be legal binding in order to make so that the marine industry adheres to the measures previewed from the transition strategy.

"The transition of the marine industry towards a future to lowlands carbon emissions - Claus Hemmingsen, vice managing director of shipowning group Danish A.P has commented. Møller-Mærsk, one of the companies signers of the document - he will stimulate is the technological innovation that the innovation of the business model. The adapted incentives for the acceleration of the investments in the research & development - it has specified Hemmingsen - can arrive only if we will have an emitted total regulation from the IMO".
