Aviation industry ‘accepts’ green challenge

27 November 2006

Presidents of the major European airlines have accepted the need to address the environmental responsibilities of their sector, according to the Association of European Airlines (AEA).

During the recent biannual gathering of the airlines’ bosses in Berlin, the proposal for a European emissions trading scheme (ETS) to target global warming was discussed with European Commission vice president and transport commissioner Jacques Barrot.

The AEA reports that the airlines agreed in principle to a trading scheme, but argued it should be seen as part of the measures designed to minimise the impact of the aviation industry on the environment.
