EU states agree on airline emissions trading plan

8 January 2008

Europe’s environment chiefs have, as predicted, delivered a politically charged salvo to the world’s airlines over plans to wrap international flights into the European Union emissions trading scheme (EU ETS).

The compromise deal hammered out between the EU’s 27 member states on 20 December at the Council of Ministers represents the collective state-level response to the European Commission’s original proposal to impose a cap on aviation’s CO2 emissions in the same way other energy-intensive industries are already treated.
