For ten years, the UN body responsible for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from international aviation has failed in its duty to limit the impact of flights on climate change and now threatens EU plans for aviation emissions trading, according to a new report published today by T&E.
On 17 October 2007 the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union, the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA), the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and the European Federation for Transport and Environment (T&E) organised a seminar in Brussels to discuss air pollution and emissions of greenhouse gases from maritime transport.
2006 progress report on the car industry's voluntary commitment to reduce CO2 emissions. Details on emissions reductions made by car manufacturer groups ACEA, JAMA and KAMA including historical figures.
European carmakers are failing to deliver the lower carbon emissions they pledged to the European Commission in 1998 (1), with emission rates from new cars down by just 0.2% last year, the worst performance on record.
Current proposals to include aviation in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme will have very little impact on aviation's contribution to climate change, a new report by leading climate scientists warns today.
Fleet-average CO2 emissions of new cars sold in the EU should improve at a rate of five per cent a year, achieving 120 g/km by 2012, 80 g/km by 2020, and 60 g/km by 2025 says T&E in a response to the European Union public consultation on cars and climate change.
