European Parliament and separately Environment Ministers propose rules to include international aviation in EU emissions trading scheme

Both the European Parliament (13 November 2007) and the Council of the European Union Environment Ministers (20 December 2007) have been formally considering a controversial proposal to include aviation under the EU's emissions trading scheme. Each has reached a first reading position and these must now be reconciled. The Aviation and climate change page of the European Commission's DG Environment provides links to the key documents.
