ABSTRACT
The article looks at the aviation industry as part of the European Union (EU) emissions trading scheme (ETS. The British government drafted a set of regulations for adding aviation in the EU ETS starting in 2012. The guidelines consist of minor changes to the first set of British rules, and other important factors like enforcing the requirement to give up carbon allowances to cover emissions and banning flights for worst-offender airlines that violate the scheme. Airports will be fined 50,000 pounds if they fail to aid in catching violators.
