The aviation sector, both in Europe and internationally, is a top polluter that has not contributed to European climate objectives under the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) to the same extent as other sectors. The European Commission recently published a proposal revising the sector’s participation in the EU ETS. The proposal followed the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) decision to establish a global offsetting measure for aviation which will enter into force in 2021.
Carbon Market Watch and Transport & Environment would like to invite you to an event to discuss the recent developments, in particular what is to be done in the period from 2017-2020 when international aviation is not bound by any climate agreement and how aviation can contribute to strengthening the EU ETS post-2020.
