Reactions to EU proposals to include aviation in its emissions trading scheme

A 6 January 2008 report in Aviation Week and Space Technology focuses on the differences between the proposals agreed by the European Parliament and Council ministers, as well as on stakeholder concerns (see previous post).

Reactions to the 20 December 2007 Council decision included those from the Association of European Airlines (AEA) and the European Federation for Transport and Environment (T&E). The announcement and reaction was also covered in articles in the Telegraph on 21 December and 22 December and in Flight International on 7 January 2008.

For some of the background to the design and impact of what is proposed see the July 2005, 245 page report Giving wings to emission trading prepared for the European Commission's DG Environment by the Dutch consultancy CE Delft. The consultancy's web site makes available a number of other reports that are relevant to the debate.
