New Zealand proposes to include domestic aviation in emissions trading scheme

A proposed new emissions trading scheme announced in late 2007 that is planned for New Zealand would cover domestic aviation along with all other domestic transport modes. The New Zealand Government has set up a web site on New Zealand's climate change solutions that gives details. Special provisions are proposed for major jet fuel purchasers.

How to deal with greenhouse gas emissions from international aviation is the subject of separate, ongoing consideration by ICAO.
