Comprehensive Solutions For Emissions Trading in EU ETS Shipping

Hecla Emissions Management AS (Hecla) is a joint venture between Wilhelmsen Ship Management and Affinity Shipping LLP, dedicated to providing expert compliance services under the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS). 

As a frontrunner in the market, Hecla is perfectly positioned to provide effective and efficient support in emission allowance procurement, management and allowance surrendering - ensuring seamless compliance with the EU ETS.

Starting in 2024, shipowners and operators will need to secure emission allowances for 40% of their emissions, escalating to 70% in 2025, and reaching 100% by 2026. Hecla’s innovative and comprehensive management system offers a clear-cut solution to managing these requirements - supporting you as regulations tighten and emission coverage increases. Wilhelmsen's technical expertise in emissions reporting and MRV (Monitoring, Reporting and Verification) compliance, combined with Affinity's extensive experience in shipping and ETS exposure analysis, positions Hecla as the ultimate partner for navigating the complexities of the EU ETS.

With over 1000 vessels under management across a multiplicity of sectors, our expertise encompasses: the handling of verified emissions data, providing strategic commercial advice, as well as providing an intuitive and user-friendly digital platform.

By merging industry-leading practices and specialized knowledge, Hecla is the perfect partner to ensure a smooth transition into the new era of EU ETS shipping regulations - allowing the maintenance of operational efficiency while adhering to stringent environmental standards.
