ABSTRACT
The article reports on the adoption of a directive by the European Council (EC) to incorporate the aviation industry into the European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) from 2012. Under the directive, carriers taking off or landing at European airports from January 1, 2012 will purchase permits to cover their emissions regardless of their nationality. The move is part of an initiative to step in reducing emissions from tile global aviation sector which is projected to emit 2% of total anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions.
