EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS)
Verification against EU climate change regulations
The EU ETS directive was established to reduce greenhouse gas emissions ‘in a cost effective and economically effective manner’, throughout the European Union. The main mechanism for doing this is through the allocation and trading of greenhouse gas emissions allowances.
From 1st January 2010, CO2 emissions from almost all flights taking off or landing at an EU member state aerodrome will need to be monitored. All airline operators covered by the legislation will have to report annual emissions to their designated EU ETS regulator. Operators can also apply for a free emissions allowance by reporting tonne-kilometre benchmark data for 2010. The emissions and benchmark data will need to be verified by an accredited third party verifier.
