MSC reiterates that T&E's analysis of fleet of the group is incorrect

The company points out that only 40-45% of emissions MRV system were produced in the EU

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) protested again for misuse that the non-profit organization Transport & Environment (T&E) would have made data on carbon dioxide of the ships of the Swiss shipping group MRV database, which was set up under the European Regulation 757/2015 on monitoring, communication and verification of CO2 emissions generated by shipping, T&E to include MSC in the top ten European carbon producers ( 6 July 2020).

As already highlighted at the end of last year ( 13 December 2019), MSC reiterated that T&E's analysis does not takes into account a number of operational aspects of maritime services group and does not offer a full assessment of their role and impact in terms of emissions. In particular, the company found that an emissions-focused analysis shipping in the European Union should take into account emissions that have actually occurred in the area EU geographical data if it is intended to compare these emissions with those of other sources limited to that area. The Swiss group pointed out that this is particularly relevant to a global company such as MSC, which operates on all major routes maritime world, and pointed out that a comprehensive analysis would show that only 40-45% of MSC's emissions in the MRV system had actually been produced in the EU. Also, - remarked the group again -- a correct analysis would show that in a single year MSC achieved a reduction of 2.5% year-on-year emissions under the MRV system.
