European Airlines Join EU Trading Program

| Thursday September 29th, 2005 | 0 Comments

klmaf.jpgWith rising fuel costs, and high burn rates (literally) Airline participation in a carbon reduction program is potentially difficult. Nonetheless, Europe’s airlines have been included in the EU trading plan to cut CO2 emissions. Some airlines, such as British airways welcomed the plan, calling it “environmentally effective and economically efficient”, but others critisized the plan for not addressing road traffic as aggressively. At the momment, it only applies to intra-EU flight, but could be extended to intercontinental flights for all airlines, not just EU-based carriers. (thx Victoria!)
