In response, Martin Dorsman secretary general of the European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA) said: "European shipowners have a strong interest to decarbonise the industry and we think it is the right decision that the EU will leave regulation of shipping's CO2 emissions to the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The IMO is currently busy drawing up its strategy for reducing CO2 emissions from the international shipping business. IMO is the organisation to regulate our global industry."

The IMO has certain agreed milestones in its plan of global climate strategy. In April 2018 the IMO should adopt an initial strategy for comprehensive emissions reductions from ships and in 2023 it should adopt a final strategy.

In the last IMO intersessional meeting in October, the industry proposed that the sector's total CO2 emissions should not increase above 2008 levels, thus establishing 2008 as the year of peak emissions from shipping, and that IMO should agree upon reduction percentages per ton-km as well as upon a reduction percentage by which the total emissions from the sector should be reduced by 2050.
