EU set to act on emissions controls for airlines

15 November 2006

The airline industry on Wednesday hit back at plans to include it in Europe’s greenhouse gas trading scheme as early as 2011, accusing Brussels of acting unilaterally.”This is about politics, not the environment,” said Anthony Concil, communications director at IATA, which represents the world’s big carriers. “Air travel is responsible for two per cent of emissions and for Europe to act before a global agreement is putting the cart before the horse.”
