INTERTANKO Guide for a Tanker Energy Efficiency Management Plan
This is a practical guide to measures that can be implemented on board to improve energy efficiency and emissions performance within a tanker fleet. It provides guidance on how to implement a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan, as well as providing a template for developing a Company Energy Efficiency Management Plan.
This Guide has been developed based on INTERTANKO’s Best Practice on Tanker Emissions and Energy Efficiency (INTERTANKO Best Practice) and outlines measures that may be implemented on board to improve energy efficiency within a tanker fleet.
It is a practical tool, providing a basis for tanker operators to implement a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan, as recommended by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in its circular – MEPC.1/Circ.683. The Guide also provides a template for developing a Company Energy Efficiency Management Plan.

INTERTANKO (the International Association of Independent Tanker Owners) is a trade association that has served as the voice for independent tanker owners since 1970, representing the interests of its Members at national, regional and international levels.
The organisation champions an industry dedicated to support global energy networks by delivering safe, efficient and environmentally sound transport services.
INTERTANKO actively works on a wide range of operational, technical, legal and commercial issues affecting tanker owners and operators around the world. It draws on regular and direct contact with its Members and other industry stakeholders to develop and disseminate information and best practice, essential to the tanker industry.
