The Port of Québec has added RightShip ratings to assess the emissions of ships entering its waters and offers discounts on port fees to vessels, dependent on their GHG rating and emission efficiency under its EcoCargo Program.  The RightShip tool provides a transparent method to assess the relative efficiency of vessels and compare a ship’s CO2 emissions relative to peer vessels of a similar size and type, using an A-G scale. RightShip GHG ratings will earn different discounts for ship owners, beginning with a 30% discount for an A rating, 20% for a B rating, and 10% for a C rating. Discounts under the EcoCargo program are based on the highest certification level attained in the Green Marine or RightShip programs.
