Environmental Incentive Scheme
Friday, November 16, 2018, Port Botany & Port Kembla, Australia

NSW Ports will introduce an environmental incentive scheme to apply to vessel related charges at Port Botany and Port Kembla from 1 January 2019.

It is the first Australian port organisation to introduce such an initiative, which is in line with international approaches in place at 53 ports worldwide. A rebate will be applied to vessels performing better than the levels required by current emission standards of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and will be based on vessels registered with the Environmental Ship Index.

To qualify for the rebate, a completed questionnaire must be submitted annually by the ship owner or its authorised agent for each ship. The questionnaire must be submitted before the last day of the first month of the quarter in order to be eligible for a rebate in that quarter. For instance, to be eligible for a rebate in the quarter Jan-Mar 2019, the questionnaire must be submitted by 31 January 2019.

The validity of each completed questionnaire will expire annually on 31 December and ship owners/agents will be required to resubmit a revised questionnaire by 31 January to maintain eligibility for the Incentive.
