Including aviation into the EU Emissions Trading System: tool to facilitate compliance for small emitters


Today the Commission adopted a Regulation approving the use of a tool to estimate fuel consumption by small aircraft operators as part of their compliance with the EU Emissions Trading System. The tool was developed by the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (Eurocontrol). The tool enables aircraft operators with few flights or emissions to use simplified monitoring procedures.
