More than 75% of the merchant ship fleet is not EEXI compliant

Six months before the introduction of EEXI, the merchant fleet does not meet the IMO conditions. More than 75% of all tankers, bulk carriers and container ships will not be compliant with the introduction of the IMO EEXI (International Maritime Organization Existing Index) energy efficiency index, according to the latest VesselsValue report.

EEXI will be introduced in January 2023 and is calculated using modifications to the formula used for EEDI. However, unlike EEDI, EEXI will apply retrospectively to existing ships that may not have been built with sustainability and energy efficiency in mind.
