"The United Nations' International Maritime Organisation (IMO), through its Marine Environment Protection Committee, has created the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) as a means of evaluating vessel design efficiency. To this end, the IMO is supportive of complimentary tools that build on or use the IMO methodology to provide transparent overviews of ships' design efficiency. Benchmarking the efficiency of vessels is a key tool in improving the overall efficiency of the international shipping fleet."
