IATA - Preparing for Emissions Trading in Europe

European Union legislation came into force incorporating aviation into the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) as from 2012. Virtually all airlines with operations to, from and within the EU fall under the scope of the directive, including non-EU airlines.

In preparation for aviation’s inclusion in the EU ETS, the European Commission has developed guidelines for the monitoring and reporting of aviation activity data (tonne-kilometers and CO2 emissions). Under the guidelines, airlines captured by the EU ETS must meet certain requirements. In summary, these airlines will have to

Monitor tonne-kilometers and CO2 emissions 
Report tonne-kilometer data 
Report CO2 emissions data 
Apply for free emissions allowances 
Surrender allowances for 2012 emissions by 30 April 2013

IATA is working with the whole industry, including manufacturers, airports, air navigation and others to turn this vision into reality. They are reducing emissions through the four-pillar strategy:

1. Investing in technology
2. Improving operational efficiency
3. Building and using efficient infrastructure
4. Positive economic instrument to provide incentives

Kenya Airways has become the first African carrier to enlist in a UN scheme to help offset emissions. Through the year atleast ten airlines are expected to start investing in projects that will earn carbon credits under an UN sponsored carbon offset programme.

The International Air Transport Association is running a carbon offset programme under the United Nations' Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), in which firms investing in such projects receive credits called certified emissions reductions.

Virtually all airlines with operations, to, from and within the European Union will come under the scope of the EU’s emissions trading scheme from 2012. Airlines are required to monitor CO2 and traffic data.
