On 26 September at 12.00 CEST, the Commission will publish a decision setting the aviation benchmark values. Two separate benchmark values, one for the year 2012 and one for the third trading period (2013-2020), will be announced. The benchmark values will be used to allocate emissions allowances free of charge to airlines.

The text of the decision and a press release will be made available in the news section of the DG CLIMA website.
