The urgency of concerted global action to tackle emissions from international aviation

March 4, 2013

New research by the Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) highlights both the urgent need for concerted global action to address international aviation emissions and underlines the fact that all current and foreseen emissions reductions measures being promoted by industry and the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) will fall well short of those needed to prevent dangerous global warming.

The study concludes that unless a carbon price is applied to the sector via a market-based measure such as emissions trading, then international aviation will fail to achieve even the modest target of carbon neutral growth in 2020 being promoted by industry.
