Market Research Report
The article focuses on the carbon offset standard launched by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) which would govern the amount that passengers should pay to offset their emissions footprint. The ICAO carbon calculator only measures carbon dioxide emissions from burning jet fuel. The contention by airlines that aviation emissions only constitute two percent of emissions has been criticized by U.S. Ambassador John Bruton. Bruton relates the amount of aviation emissions in the European Union (EU) from intercontinental flights.
