‚ÄčThe EC publishes the EEA-wide historical aviation emissions

01/07/2011



The European Commission (EC) published the Decision on the EEA-wide historical aviation emissions adopted on 1 July 2011 which serves as the basis to calculate the EEA-wide cap for aviation, which is now set at 221 420 279 tonnes of CO2. This figure represents the average of the annual emissions for the years 2004, 2005 and 2006 of all activities covered by the scope of the legislation.

The total quantity of allowances to be allocated in 2012 will be equal to 97% of the EEA-wide estimated historical aviation emissions. In the period 2013-2020 this percentage will be reduced to 95% of the EEA-wide estimated historical aviation emissions.
