EU system, Monitoring, Reporting, verifying (MRV), means that ships moving in the waters around EU should report their CO2 emissions and transport work. The feasibility study will answer how MRV data can be used by the maritime sector for the calculations of the environmental performance of shipping. The feasibility study's overall objective is to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and provide a better understanding of industry challenges around MRV.
