Abstract: Reducing CO2 emissions from the shipping sector represent a challenge for the international community. The European Union has given a step forward with the adoption of Regulation 2015/757 establishing the obligation to all ships calling for an EU port to surrender detailed information regarding the CO2 emissions for the entire voyage. Such an obligation may raise issues of jurisdictional overreach of European Law when ships come from beyond a member State's EEZ, and will overlap with the IMO regulatory task pursuant the Kyoto Protocol Art. 2. 2 mandate. The aim of this essay is firstly to assess the current policy options to address the shipping emissions conundrum, review the existing regulatory framework at the international and community level and see how international actors interact with each other in the policymaking process. Secondly, Regulation 2015/757 and its application problems will be assessed, especially the jurisdictional concerns, to conclude that the active legislative role of the EU is desirable towards encouraging the IMO to reach a global agreement on CO2 decisive reduction.
