Press Release: Agreement reached on cutting Aviation Emissions

EU lawmakers last night reached a deal that will continue to see international flights exempted from the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme until 2023. ECR MEP Julie Girling was the European Parliament’s lead negotiator and has welcomed the agreement that will still see internal flights within the EU coming under the ETS and contributing more to emissions reductions on an annual basis. Mrs. Girling successfully proposed introducing a time limit for the exemption that will see it lapse on 31st December 2023. With the International Civil Aviation Authority due to introduce a global carbon offsetting scheme for the sector in 2021, the time limit will enable lawmakers to assess whether the global scheme makes an effective contribution to the objectives of the Paris Agreement and amend the provisions of the ETS accordingly.

Press Release: Aviation emissions: MEPs reach deal with Council

The legislation, informally agreed on Wednesday evening by Parliament and Council negotiators, will prolong the exemption for intercontinental flights until 31 December 2023, when the first phase of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO)’s Carbon Reduction and Offsetting Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) scheme will kick in. This will prevent legal gaps, as the exemption was due to expire at the end of this year. MEPs ensured that the European Commission will have to review the legislation with a view to including the CORSIA scheme in the EU Emission Trading System (ETS), so intra-EU and intercontinental flights are covered by a single system.
